News Summary: Report: Supplements poorly labeled
Wednesday - 10/3/2012, 4:16pm EDT
(AP) - FAT CHANCE: Government investigators warn that dozens of diet and immune system supplements are illegally labeled and lack the recommended scientific evidence to back up their purported health claims.
POOR ODDS: Twenty percent of the 127 weight loss and immune-boosting supplements investigators purchased online and in retail stores nationwide had labels that made illegal claims to cure or treat disease.
SNAKE OIL? Some products went so far as to say that the supplements could cure or prevent diabetes or cancer, or that they could help treat people with HIV or AIDS, which is strictly prohibited under federal law.
