Prime Minister of Canada
Under the guise of looking out for the ‘safety’ of Canadians, Health Canada has, in fact, shut down the freedom to choose for Canadian citizens by having exclusive power over product approval. The natural health products industry has risen above scepticism with legitimate research into some of the most innovative products worldwide, maintained growth through economic turmoil and provided answers and help when the medical model with its prescription drugs and/or surgery has failed the Canadian public.

Suppliers in this country are at their wits end trying to comply with the regulations and fees imposed by the government; products are required to be reformulated (often lacking key ingredients) and labels are changing at an alarming rate to accommodate the various claims and subsequent cautions that must be shown on the product. Has anybody died as a result of a natural health product? No. Never. There has never been a death attributed to a natural health product in this country. Statistically, you are more likely to have an anaphylactic reaction to nuts, shellfish and prescription drugs. Natural health products do not belong in the drug category and ought not be regulated nor treated as such.

Cigarette and alcohol companies with markedly high and proven health detriments are allowed to sell unfettered at the same time?
