Are the US elections likely to have an impact on the Natural Products Industry?

November 2010, Warren Matthews

Summary

Who knows? I certainly don't. What I do know is that there are many vested interests that would like to stifle the growth of this sector and focus on pharmaceutical intervention.

Who knows? I certainly don't. What I do know is that there are many vested interests that would like to stifle the growth of this sector and focus on pharmaceutical intervention.

However, these are countered to some extent by advocates of preventative health care through the use of natural products and sensible lifestyle.

We are members of the US Natural Products Association (NPA). A couple of weeks ago Kane and myself had dinner with John Gay the Executive Director and CEO of NPA. He is a tireless worker in helping 'clean up' the industry and cooperating with the various government agencies for sensible enforcement.

He has just issued a news release on his take that the election may have on this industry. ( "Election Brings Changes to Congress that Will Impact the Natural Products Industry" by Natural Product Association).

  • “Whats the deal with the FDA, it seems as of late, nobody seems to have anything positive to say about FDA or Pharma? Everyone seems to imply that everyone is either bought out or corrupt due to the various lobbyists, like Monsanto have. Aren’t they working in the peoples’ interests, despite the 225,000 people who died last year due to taking faulty drugs? It seems one cannot trust anybody these days, and that says alot about us all as a global civilization.”
