"This article documented the continuing availability in the U.S. of nutritional supplements that are drugs in all but name, and are capable of causing serious side effects including death. We showed how easy it was to obtain the 12 most dangerous of these products by making purchases ourselves in retail stores and on the Internet. We then examined how loopholes and lax enforcement of supplement regulatory laws in the U.S. have allowed purveyors of these hazardous products to flourish. We also examined and debunked the widely held belief that supplements are safe because they're 'natural.'"
