{{data.pair|Title|Must people die before DSHEA is repealed?}}
{{data.pair|Text|&ldquo;The [[Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994]] (DSHEA) allows herbal and non-herbal supplements to be sold in the [[United States|US]] without demonstration of effectiveness or safety. Despite recent improvements in Good Manufacturing Practices required of supplement manufacturers, these products still pose significant risks to the population simply because the hands of regulatory authorities are tied - products cannot be removed from the market until there is evidence for lack of safety, meaning that consumers must first be harmed before [[Food and Drug Administration|FDA]] is authorized to intervene.&rdquo;}}<noinclude>
