This essay will address some key questions about dietary supplements, also known as natural health products (NHPs). Facts about NHP benefits and risks, from Canada and USA publications, will be examined. A performance audit of Health Canada’s oversight of the NHP Regulations will be presented. My perspective is based on education, personal experiences, medical research and mentors in the field of nutrition. References are linked to original sources to facilitate further study by interested readers.
