Drug Topics Quotes Associate Kristi L. Wolff on the Mixed Messages of Dietary Supplements

Associate Kristi L. Wolff was quoted in the Drug Topics article Dietary Supplements: Reclaiming the Roots of Pharmacy.” The article discusses how the dietary supplement market is a minefield studded with health hazards, as herbal products, vitamins, minerals, and specialty items are a mystery of marketing claims, and their risks and benefits are poorly understood by health professionals and consumers. Ms. Wolff explained that Consumers are presented with a staggering volume of health information in traditional and emerging technologies — basic web searches, Twitter, Facebook, and now mobile phone apps. It can be extremely difficult to determine what is reliable scientific information, what is quackery, what is independent, and what is advertising.”
