This is our opportunity to help expand public knowledge and wisdom regarding natural health products like foods, vitamins, herbs, and minerals.

Congressional Dietary Supplement Caucus Update

WASHINGTON—The Congressional Dietary Supplement Caucus, in cooperation with the two the Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN) and the Natural Products Association (NPA), hosted the third of a series of lunch briefings since the Congressional Dietary Supplement Caucus was founded. The briefings were aimed at educating Congressional staffers on important issues related to the dietary supplement industry.

William Cooper, M.D., medical director of cardiovascular surgery, Wellstar-Kennestone Hospital in Marietta, Ga., and assistant professor of Cardiothoracic Surgery, Emory University School of Medicine, spoke to more than 90 attendees about the importance of using dietary supplements as part of an overall healthy lifestyle. Dr. Cooper also offered advice for how supplements can play an important role in prevention and healthcare reform.

“When you get to me, you really don’t want to buy what I’m selling,” said Dr. Cooper, referring to his heart surgery specialty. He encouraged the individuals in the audience to focus on preventative health, rather than the current sick-care health system that is in place. “As a nation, we are consistently inconsistent. But there are simple things that all of us can do every day to better our health—and that includes taking dietary supplements.”
