In the article titled, Confidence In The Efficacy And Safety Of Dietary Supplements Among United States Active Duty Army Personnel, Lieberman and Carvey (2012) observe that dietary supplements are used by the U.S. army soldiers to enhance their muscle strength and energy. According to a study that was conducted by Monroe (2012), dietary supplements such as green tea, fibre, and calcium supplements are also used for weight-loss purposes. Although the use of dietary supplements is prevalent among the local population there is limited scientific evidence to show that dietary supplements are  effective and safe. This paper argues that when confronted with questions about dietary supplements, physicians are supposed to give their honest opinions.
