Supplements causing increasing numbers of hospital visits due to liver injury

The liver is the bodies chemistry factory. It takes molecules we ingest and modifies them into things that are less harmful and which can be more easily excreted. Virtually everything we consume passes through the liver and goes through some sort of precessing. Some things do so harmlessly while others can put stress on the liver and over time can cause damage to it. Its no surprise then that given the public’s love affair with supplements over the past few years we are now seeing a jump in cases of liver injury as these unregulated substances are being used more and more. The story below form the NY Times reports on this growing problem.

I’ve seen it before. Not surprised at all.

The problem with supplements is that there is no control place on them by the FDA. No of use should be taking any of them unless advised to do so by an MD.

Sorry friends, I answered some old posts that others have already responded to. In fact, I had responded to them back then, too. I’m sure both Rosanin and Jaysam are trolls as others have stated. If they are not they should have responded by now.
