CHOP no longer allows the use of dietary supplements. If only they were more vigilant with pharmaceuticals, which kill a (conservatively) 107,000 people a year. Conversely, 60 billion vitamins and supplements were consumed in 2010 with zero deaths. I can't believe how self important this man is.
“CHOP has long embraced its responsibility to advance patient safety as the cornerstone to improving children’s health.” said Paul Offit, MD, Chair of the hospital’s Therapeutic Standards Committee. “Patients with chronic diseases use dietary supplements more frequently than the general population and are at greater risk for adverse events and interactions. Better monitoring and regulating the way we distribute these products is one more step we can take to make sure that we’re providing the best possible medical care for our children.”
