Reading Time: <1 minute   I am currently teaching a lecture on alternative medicine and ethics at Juntendo University Graduate School of Medicine.With regard to supplements, we are flooded with information and the benefits are being promoted one-sidedly, so every year we talk about the risks of taking supplements in our lectures.Be careful with overseas supplements, as even if they are called supplements, they may contain the same ingredients as pharmaceutical products.It is well known that there was a case in which a person who purchased Chinese-made diet supplements online died.When it comes to imported products from overseas, you need to be especially careful as the ingredients may not be as listed.I think it's safer to never touch diet supplements.
