January/February 2016: The Dark Issue Special Edition
In this issue, the first-ever Dark Issue, the NBJ will name some names. We bring this issue to press and pixels, a bit over a year since New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman told the world that herbal supplements sold by major retailers contained none of the ingredients proclaimed on the label. The science missed the mark, with the industry able to quickly point out flaws in the DNA bar code test. Still, many supplement makers have since agreed that while it may have been the wrong test, ingredient purity is most certainly the right target.
