Many supplement makers do not need DSHEA, argues Wes Siegner, Esq. of the law firm Hyman, Phelps & McNamara, P.C. In this article published at the Natural Products Insider web site, Siegner suggests that many supplement products on the market today could be marketed as foods instead.
The advantage of this approach, for products that qualify, could be less stringent regulations. This may be particularly attractive in light of the fact that the supplement industry will soon be required to submit adverse events reports.
