Trying to Outlaw Natural Health - Again!

from Radical Business Consultant and friend

Hey there,

If you live in Canada (or know someone who does) this may be of interest.

I have recently been hearing rumblings about the workings of Big Pharma in Canada and it had me think: What good is learning how to market your natural health products if they become illegal?

Many of you may have heard about the big win the Big Pharma scored recently in Europe. According to an article by Heidi Stevenson:

Big Pharma has almost reached the finish line of its decades-long battle to wipe out all competition. As of 1 April 2011-less than eight months from now-virtually all medicinal herbs will become illegal in the European Union. The approach in the United States is a bit different, but it's having the same devastating effect. The people have become nothing more than sinks for whatever swill Big Pharma and Agribusiness choose to send our way, and we have no option but to pay whatever rates they want.

The same thing could happen in Canada.

I don't fully understand the nature of these laws or this situation - but I thought you'd want to be kept up to date - or might have something to contribute to the conversation.

I'd love to get your comments and thoughts.
