Abstract

Products such as vitamins, minerals, and probiotics in addition to dietary supplements are often thought of as benign and beneficial; when in reality they have the potential to cause life-threatening adverse health effects. Given the demonstrated health risks for young adults, dietary supplements should be held to stringent regulations to ensure the safety of humans as well as work to prevent environmental contamination.
