DSHEA at 25:
In conversation with Scott Bass and Loren Israelsen
In this milestone 25th anniversary year, UNPA reflects back on and celebrates the passage of the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA). Loren Israelsen and Scott Bass, two of the principal architects of DSHEA, discuss the many political challenges they faced and the various set-backs the bill encountered.
Each looks to the future to visualize where the industry is going and how best to set the legislative framework to allow the industry and ultimately the consumers to succeed.
UNPA member nutraingredients-usa.com has posted a two-part video of Stephen Daniell’s excellent interview with Loren Israelsen and Scott Bass discussing DSHEA. You can view both segments here::

UNPA PRESENTS AN EXPERT INSIGHTS WEBINAR:
10 Kinds of Synthetic Biology Likely to Affect Your Clean-label Product Claims

The United Natural Products Alliance invites you to join Jim Thomas, co-executive director of ETC Group, for this detailed look at 10 new and emerging genetic engineering technologies.
