The Fifth Estate Nov 2015 Report


Friends of NHPPA, Dr. Zoltan P. Rona and Dr. Gifford-Jones share their thoughts on the CBC’s The Fifth Estate episode, Vitamins and Supplements: Magic Pills that aired November 20, 2015. While Shawn Buckley prepares his response, read two opinions that are echoed widely across the country.

Dr. Zolton Rona wrote on his Facebook page: “I just saw the 5th Estate show on nutritional supplements on line. What a triumph for the psychopaths! It’s very damaging to the industry, full of lies and misleading information. They ignored thousands of very positive studies, especially on vitamin D. The DNA bar coding testing is a red herring absurdity and was said to be embraced by Nature’s Way and GNC. I don’t understand how they can adopt this technique because it will make most of their products look falsely bogus. The show really smeared Linus Pauling, fish oil supplements and even vitamin E. The CHFA response to it was weak, very weak. I think that most people knowledgeable in supplements will not be swayed by this nonsense. It will be people who are sitting on the fence on taking various supplements whose health will be affected the most. It’s unfortunate but, with positive studies being published daily, the truth will become much clearer in the months and years to come.”

Dr. W. Gifford-Jones wrote this article to be published in 60 newspapers across Canada. His Facebook page is well worth liking.
