What we're talking about - December 2009

Weather report
"The sky is not falling. Now we are under a 'hurricane watch,' but this is not the perfect storm."

— Steven Mister, president and CEO, Council for Responsible Nutrition, at CRN's Annual Symposium for the Dietary Supplement Industry in October

Top-down success
"All organisational renewal begins with personal renewal of an organization's leadership."

— Gary Heil, founder of the Center for Innovative Leadership at the same CRN symposium, talking about how the dietary-supplement industry can change only if the environment changes

Common sense
"It's what consumers are looking for — just keep it simple."

— Greg Stephens, Natural Marketing Institute, on clean-label concepts

Make it legal
"Pretty sad that they are targeting supplement companies like this. Sad part is if they would just legalize all this we wouldn't have to play this stupid cat and mouse game!"

— Blog response to Bodybuilding.com's recall of 65 products that may contain illegal products, from www.elitefitness.com
