What is your reaction to the supplement and food quantity comparisons (cantaloupe and almonds)? Explain.

Many Americans turn to dietary supplements for health or to cure a condition. As a society, we desire a quick fix or a magic pill.

If you visited your doctor for an antibiotic to cure strep throat, you would trust that the medication received from the pharmacy was just as prescribed. Why?  Pharmaceutical drugs (antibiotics, prescription medications, over the counter painkillers such as Tylenol and Advil, etc.) are closely regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

If you purchase a supplement at a local store, you would trust that the product in the bottle was just as advertised- think again! The safety of dietary supplements largely depends on the honor system- the honesty of the company selling them.

In this project you will watch a film on dietary supplements and respond to a series of questions about the topic. Your instructor is looking for in-depth responses with direct examples from the film. Short and imprecise responses will earn zero credit. Don’t leave your instructor guessing whether or not you watched the film. Copy and paste the questions below into a Word document, 12-point font, 1 inch margins. You will upload the document to Canvas… include questions and answers please. In fact, include the questions in a different color or bold font or highlighted yellow so they can be differentiated from your responses.
