C-51 Policy Statement - Canadian Natural Health Coalition
"These bureaucrats are comfortably indifferent to the tens of thousands of Canadians annually who die or suffer adverse effects from the legal drugs they so blithely permit. Almost every day Canadians are informed of studies or reports that find some approved prescription drug or another doesn’t work or causes serious adverse effects. About these things Health Canada does nothing. The hypocrisy of Health Canada on product safety is obscene."
"People would not be turning to non-drug and "non-standard" health solutions -- if the essentially-free, publicly-insured "proper medical care" really worked. It's because of the medical system's failure to cure "chronic" disease and the massive adverse reactions and deaths that Canadians are voting with their pocketbooks for other approaches."
From the above, obviously many find Natural Health Products (NHP) efficacious and safe all without the proposed regulations already, so why such a "tempest in teapot"? Is it because NHP cut into the cash cow disease management, palliative and generally toxic drug monopoly?

This post along with its links contains enough fodder for all to respond to their MPs' party line response on the self serving need for these bills.
The CNHC statement follows - much embellished of course!
