How to spot an ‘organic’ b12 dairy product
It has long been recognized that b12 is one of the key nutrients that play an important role in human health, as well as the production of the human body’s most important nutrient.
But the science surrounding the vitamin remains controversial, and even the US Food and Drug Administration, which has the final say on whether a product qualifies for a label, has not yet issued a definitive statement on the subject.
The FDA did issue a statement this week saying that there was no need to “expose consumers to potentially harmful chemicals,” though the agency noted that a lack of data on the health benefits of the vitamin is one area that should be examined.
The National B12 Council, a group that represents b12 producers and manufacturers, has urged the FDA to take a stand on the issue.
In a statement to CNN, the group’s president, Dr. Kevin Miller, said the FDA should “stop using its authority to regulate the production and marketing of b12 and instead regulate the safety and efficacy of bs, and that is to require that consumers and the environment are protected from the harmful chemicals that have been linked to the deaths of children and animals.”
