Complementary and Alternative Medicine: Fair, Balanced, and to the Point
  • About this web log

    This blog ran from 2006 to 2016 and was intended as an objective and dispassionate source of information on the latest CAM research. Since my background is in pharmacy and allopathic medicine, I view all CAM as advancing through the development pipeline to eventually become integrated into mainstream medical practice. Some will succeed while others fail. But all are treated fairly here.

    Asian supplements industry creates AAHSA

    The ASEAN Alliance of Health Supplement Associations (AAHSA) is a newly created a body that will address regulatory issues in food supplements in 10 Asian countries. ASEAN stands for the Association of Southeast Asian Nations.

    AAHSA is an umbrella organization for the supplements industry associations of Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam. It also works with Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Laos, and Myanmar.

    Too bad China isn’t included. The industry in that country would benefit from oversight, as has been discussed here, here, and here.
