Next, the TGA needs to expand the Heading of Section 25 of the Therapeutic Goods Advertising Code (No.2) 2018 to: ‘Vitamins, Minerals and other supplements’ and the text to: ‘Vitamins, Minerals, Fish oil and other supplements are no substitute for a healthy diet. Speak to your health professional before starting any new treatment, including supplements.’
