WHITE PLAINS, NEW YORK — MARCH 6, 2007 — ConsumerLab.com announced today that it is producing and webcasting a series of free, online audio seminars, or "webinars," that explain the use of popular types of dietary supplements. The educational webinars feature guest medical experts along with experts from ConsumerLab.com. The first webinar was broadcast in February and focused on supplements for joint care, including glucosamine and chondroitin. Nearly 3,000 consumers, pharmacists, and physicians registered for the live event. It expect thousands more to listen to the 42-minute webinar which can now be heard at any time, free at http://www.consumerlab.com/webinar.asp.

"These webinars are a great complement to our product test reports," said Tod Cooperman, MD, President of ConsumerLab.com. "People can listen to top medical experts discuss how these supplements are used in clinical practice. The webinars also address important questions that registrants email in prior to the live broadcasts."

The first webinar, "Supplements for Joint Health," featured David Hungerford, M.D., professor of orthopedic surgery at Johns Hopkins University. It addressed the role of supplements in the management of osteoarthritis including a review of the clinical evidence, risks, product quality, and dosing.

Future webinars include "Fish Oil/Omega-3 Supplements," "Supplements for Bone Health," and "Supplements for Cholesterol Control." ConsumerLab.com maintains editorial control over the webinars.
