Product Overview

This book presents a careful, systematic, balanced and unbiased examination of data in a contentious field - scientific data that are available and/or needed to substantiate and evaluate the safety and efficacy of dietary supplements. It uses a series of case studies that are illustrative of the types of scientific challenges that have been encountered in substantiating safety and efficacy for various product types and uses. The chapters illustrate some of the successes, challenges and frustrations that have occurred in recent years. Discussions among presenters and participants identify the lessons learned from these experiences and formulate ideas for improved approaches to identifying research needs and for enhancing the quality and relevance of the scientific evidence available for policy decisions.
