This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

HERBAL/BOTANICAL SAFETY REVIEW SEPARATE FROM VITAMIN AND MINERALS suggested by commission member Shiriki Kumanyika, PhD, University of Illinois at Chicago, at an Oct. 24 meeting of the President's Commission on Dietary Supplement Labels in Washington, D.C. When considering dietary supplement safety, it might "be appropriate for us to subdivide" more "traditional vitamin and mineral supplements" from "other types of supplements," Kumanyika suggested.
