I know a lot of people don't bother keeping up with news.

So here are two potentially key points on supplements from 2013 people might have missed.

#1 DNA tests reveal many herbal supplements are fake


#2 Hundreds of Dietary Supplements Are Tainted with Prescription Drugs


#2 has been known since at least 2013, if not earlier, but didn't become an issue in MMA until october 2015 when USADA went into effect and tainted supplements became a major issue.

#1 doesn't apply only to herbal supplements. If I remember right there were many supplements that were DNA tested that were found not to contain what was advertised. In some cases supplements contained substances known to be toxic and harmful to human health.

I can't remember any science, health or sports websites doing much to cover these basic points so maybe there is a place for this somewhere.

To be honest, the first one was the most scary for me, because I do consume supplements and I've never thought that it can contain something harmful or toxic. Why don't they test them properly before being displayed for sale? It is really scandalous, because people are buying them to improve their health, but in fact they get intoxicated. Also, I'm a big fan of this kind of stuff, and recently I ran into this page Health Benefits of Reishi Mushroom . I hope the news don't relate to this product, because I've already tried it and it seems safe and really efficient.
