O&N's media campaign is in full swing promoting the need to know your levels for both Omega 3 and vitamin D.

Take a moment to watch Dr. Ken Redcross on the NBC Atlanta affiliate program alt&co, (watch at 5:14).   He's also on NY1 News (watch at 3:29).  Here's a sample of Dr. Christine Horner on The Breast Cancer Awareness Show (listen at 12:01).

These are just two examples of our skilled Scientific Advisors promoting O&N's Consumer Education and Research Agenda!

Glyphosate Testing 

On June 12, the O&N Board of Directors will vote on final approval of the Association's new, annual testing program.  Consumers are demanding complete transparency regarding quality, integrity and manufacturing processes for the products and foods they consume. O&N is committed to supporting your efforts to meet consumer expectations.

We will be initiate this program by utilizing the expertise of HRI Labs to test products and ingredients for glyphosate residue over a three year period. We have much to learn on this topic. What is an acceptable level?  Where are trace amounts coming from?  It is our objective to collaborate with our members to explore sourcing issues and create guidelines that serve our commitment to transparency, traceability, accessibility and continual quality improvement.
