    Here's the link to the article. I hadn't heard of this before today. Curious what your thoughts on it are if it passes.

    I think it might help to get rid of all these grey market steroids. As for the other stuff, it shouldn't hurt, but if it requires gov't approval before being introduced to the market, that means delays... Perhaps long ones.

    I would need to see more details. Obviously the FDA doesnt have the manpower to read every label sent to them. However it would give them ammunition at hand if they were to have issues with any company

    We all know mislabeling and misbranding is rampant in sports nutrition. To varying degrees this would be scary to many companies

    It wouldnt really effect companies which spike their supps with stuff not on the label though

    this wouldnt involve govt approval

    however the FDA often thinks many natural products are not dshea compliant. they think just about everything needs a new dietary ingredient notification, which requires tens of thousands of dollars of safety studies often.

    its the NDIN requirements coupled with stuff like this labeling act thing that could really put an end to any innovation in the industry

    If it doesn't stop companies from spiking products, it's just more worthless legislation

    it would allow the FDA to screen for ingredients on the label that they believe dont qualify as supplements though
