    Supplement Bashing on PBS
    Latest Hatchet-Job to Air Jan 19


    by Andrew W. Saul, Editor

    (OMNS, Jan 17, 2016) It may be time for some extra niacin. PBS FRONTLINE has advertised a program teaser for "Supplements and Safety" that proves, if nothing else, that yellow journalism still attracts viewers. http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/frontline/film/supplements-and-safety/ Prepare to be presented with the same old anti-vitamin saws dressed up as sensational, breaking news. And here they are:
    Legend Number One: "Supplements are unregulated!"

    Not true. Supplements are indeed regulated. (Honestly, now: can you think of anything in this nation that the government doesn't regulate?) Specifically, at the US Food and Drug Administration's own website:
    "FDA regulates both finished dietary supplement products and dietary ingredients." http://www.fda.gov/Food/DietarySupplements/

    HEY, Thanks for that reminder, as just yesterday, I saw the Las Cruces, NM PBS affiliate KRWG, advertise it for this evening. I just checked their website schedule and it shows info for today, as not available, hmmm. http://krwg.org/tv/krwg But it's on Frontline, which would have to be somewhere between 7PM to 9PM MST. I also receive PBS KCOS 13.1, El Paso, TX, and they show the Frontline doc at 9PM MST. http://www.kcostv.org/schedules/tvsc...ider=Broadcast Both are not always the same schedule, so check your local listings. I'll do a quick reminder on Mercola.
