The role of the federal government in regulation of the supplement industry continues to be a controversial topic. We see older adults purchasing them because of often misleading anti-aging claims, teens and athletes using them for desired enhanced athletic performance, and many count on them for weight control or increased energy. Each of you will be assigned a side to this debate – either for more government regulation of the supplement market or against this regulation. Compose fact based debating points for your position. Finally, did this debate change your perspective on this issue and why?
If your last name starts with A-K you are FOR more government regulation of supplements
If your last name starts with L-Z you are AGAINST more government regulation of supplements.
