As you may have already heard, health freedom in NZ is again threatened, this time by the Natural Health and Supplementary Products bill.

To sum up the situation in one sentence, the Natural Health and Supplementary Products bill threatens New Zealanders’ access to the large range of natural health products from which we can currently choose and the survival of natural health businesses – especially small to medium businesses.

There is information about this bill in the Health Freedom section of issue 20 (available free of charge when you download the sample PDF for this issue from this link) and there is also information on the a number of links of our website (the most crucial links are listed below.)
