Nanotechnology In Your Vitamins
The ability of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to regulate
the safety of dietary supplements using nanomaterials is severely
limited by lack of information, lack of resources and the agency’s lack
of statutory authority in certain critical areas, according to a new
expert report released by the Project on Emerging Nanotechnologies
(PEN).
The report, “A Hard Pill To Swallow: Barriers to Effective FDA
Regulation of Nanotechnology-Based Dietary Supplements”, details the
main problems at FDA in regulating nano-enabled dietary supplements and
offers a host of recommendations for improving oversight of such
products.
