See http://www.fda.gov/food/foodscienceresearch/biotechnology/ucm346030.htm However, I feel the FDA has been derelict in its duty to protect consumers by ignoring evidence that GMO foods may be harmful.

Is the diet supplement dopamite safe?

Is the diet supplement dopamite safe?

Dopamite: Like most 'supplements' the buyer should be aware: that they do not work. The quality of any supplement can never be assured first of all. Second, look for magical ingredients from strange plants in exotic places: those places are great to visit on vacation, but using chopped up and dried extracts of some plant from far away is another thing altogether. None of these supplements are ever tested in. ...Read more
