My Thoughts <ul><li>Currently, we cannot stop the aging process, but we can age gracefully . </li></ul><ul><li>The Food and Drug Administration should regulate the cosmeceuticals, and make sure there is pre-market approval and safety/efficacy testing to prevent any unsafe products in the marketplace.
