Like "My feeling on supplements is that most have actually been tested far more than the newer drugs that are coming on the market. You just can't patent a herb and therefore there is no money it for the big companies so they don't take it to the FDA. They also have a far smaller chance of working than a prescription med. I don't like taking drugs but I do because I have to. I really don't like taking the newer drugs because they really haven't been tested very well and have questionable safety profiles, but I do because I have to. Januvia is a prime example of that. It may be that in a few years there will be tens of thousands of people with januvia caused cancer because the FDA didn't require the testing that should have been done before it was approved. I take it still knowing that because for right now the positives just outweigh the negatives. That may not be the case forever though."
