Vitamins and supplements: The 30-billion dollar rip-off!
Often times you might be walking through your local market and in the area where they have their vitamins and supplements, you might see some unsuspecting consumers carefully looking at the label of the bottle they are holding.

The truth is, the vitamin and supplement industry is virtually non-regulated and none of the companies are required to go through safety and efficacy testing.

Most major media outlets will not report this because some of their largest ads (source of revenue) are from the companies who make these products.
