Yeah I saw that.
I think you need to read between the lines of that article and remember to be a wise consumer.  If you are buying cheap vitamin C made in china, you're a fool.  Do you go to the supermarket and buy little jars of white chinese asparagus??  Do you buy frozen, latin american or asian farmed shrimp?  Fool. The supermarkets will let you buy this stuff, and its garbage.  Every country in fact produces garbage food and so why not supplements as well.

They tested 40 supplements but give no information on the quality or manufacturer or origin of these supplements.  
I think some people take supplements without thinking much about the quality of the ingredient or its real value for health, as well.  
Supplements are obviously a cash cow and potentially toxic, so the bathwater is dirty, but lets not throw out the baby with the bathwater.

Now am confused, not sure if its a baby I should keep at all. Some things do not desrve commercialisation, worst thing is, its done by fellow human beings and some of the active consumers are their own family members.
If you can't find someone on earth to love you at least love yourself dearly.
