34. Allow me....

 



"Nonetheless, there are parts of life that we have looked upon as needing more regulation. Health care has been one of those. Unfortunately, the supplement industry has used lobbying to subvert regulation where it should occur."

When a major player in the industry purchases the right to 'make the rules' (write the 'regulations') and are allowed to do so, in their own favor, then it isn't even good free-enterprise. It's stupid and corrupt and adversely affecting the health and well-being of the very citizen it is mandated to help.

That's why Health Canada cut the pharmacuetical industrys' right to advertise out of their public health sysyem. They still have a lobbying effort but once people have experienced a public health system, their message is 'falling on deaf ears'.
