Use of dietary supplements has increased significantly during the past decade. This new report from the Institute of Medicine -- which is fundamentally a framework document, being proposed and distributed for comment -- describes a scientifically based approach the U.S. Food and Drug Administration could use to assess the safety of ingredients found in dietary supplements.

These series of briefings were for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on July 24, 2002 and is available online, in its entirety, through the Web site of the National Academies Press.
