CRN members defend military access to supplements
During the meeting with Roberts’ staffer, David Morrison, VP of scientific and regulatory affairs at The Vitamin Shoppe, shared information about the supplement industry. An unplanned message Morrison and others delivered throughout the day was that industry does not support amendments to the Department of Defense 2016 spending bill that threaten to ban the sale of uncertified supplements on military bases. Other amendments seek to create a separate adverse event reporting system for military personnel and to require military members to report to their healthcare provider what supplements they take.
