Dietary Supplements Linked to Liver Damage

A new study suggests that dietary supplements used to aid in weight loss and body building may cause liver damage.

Researchers examined 109 incidents of patients - mostly male, white and overweight - who appeared to have suffered liver injury due to dietary supplements, according to Doctor’s Lounge. They found an association between the drugs and liver damage, but also note that they did not find a cause and effect link.

"There is so little regulation of the many products on the market," said lead author Dr. Victor Navarro, professor of medicine, pharmacology and experimental therapies at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia. "We couldn't possibly begin to figure out which products to target first without doing this research."
