The Regulation of Health Claims in Advertising for Functional Foods and Natural Health Products in Canada and the United States

The use of nutraceuticals, functional foods, and natural health products (NFFNHPs) to derive associated health benefits is common in Canada. Using data from 2005, Health Canada estimates that 71% of Canadians regularly use nutraceuticals, meaning they regularly consume vitamins and minerals, homeopathic medicines, etc. That number might be larger if it included Canadians who have changed their consumption of certain foods or food products because of associated health claims.

This edition of How Good Is Canadian Health Care? provides answers to a series of questions that are important to resolve if Canada is to make the correct choices as it amends its health care policies. The study is strictly comparative and examines a wide number of factors for the member countries of the OECD in arriving at the answers to the questions posed. In this study, we primarily compare Canada to other countries that also have universal access, publicly funded, health care systems.
