    If this bill passes, it could spell big trouble for Canadian supplement consumers.

    Criticism of natural health products Bill C-51 mounts


    Imagine having to go to your doctor for a Fish Oil cap prescription? Now imagine having to go to a pharmacist and pay a dispensing fee on top of the newly-inflated price for your Fish Oil caps?

    Now imagine doing that for all your supps.

    This is no joke.

    Critics point out that this Bill is little more than a cash grab for the pharmaceutical industry, which will assume almost total control over the production and distribution of food supplements and natural remedies in Canada should C-51 pass.

    And take note: The cabinet member who drafted and introduced the bill (Tony Clement) has come under fire from journalists who uncovered that he holds a 25% stake in a large pharmaceutical company.

    If you are a supplement consumer and you live in Canada, you really should check this website out:

    It's extra brutal because Tony Clement is our federal Health Minister.

    I hate going to the doctor so much, I'll probably have to stop taking supps. Might force me to eat better though.

    I was thinking of the 10lbs box Revok just got filled with 6,000 of the fuckers. I don't know where the hell I'd store that much though, I have a small freezer.

    Could you imagine the epic fishy burp you'd get if all the condom's filled with fish oil pills you're smuggling in your stomach suddenly burst?
