Welcome to the the first installment of Health Canada Approves… a new weekly series designed to introduce you to the wide array of natural health products given the gold seal by Health Canada’s Natural Health Products Directorate.
If you’re a regular reader of Skeptic North, you’ll know that we’ve been critical of the NHPD in the past for declaring products “effective” without sufficient evidence of such claims. Have we been too harsh? That’s for you to decide.
Each week, we’ll be presenting two products — one real and approved by Health Canada, the other invented in the darker reaches our brains — and ask you to figure out which is which. The following week, we’ll tally the votes, give you the answer, and present a new set of products for your consideration.
So here we go. And remember, the real product “has been assessed by Health Canada and has been found to be safe, effective and of high quality under its recommended conditions of use.”
