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

    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).
