Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT), a noted champion of natural supplements, has announced he will not seek re-election in 2018. The announcement came last week. He may even retire before his term ends.
As one of natural health’s foremost advocates in Congress, we are sad to see him go. Rep. Chaffetz was a staunch supporter of consumer access to dietary supplements, both in principle and in action. He weighed in with the FDA numerous times over the years against the agency’s disastrous new dietary ingredient (NDI) guidance.
