Congressman Cannon supports supplement companies in many ways

Salt Lake Tribune
Chris Cannon's throat would get sore every time fall gave way to winter and then again when winter melted into spring.

Twice a year, every year.

His doctor suggested a supplement called L-lysine.

"It was like 'There is no data on this, but . . . ' " said Cannon, a congressman representing Utah's 3rd District.
He gave the pills a try, the sore throats vanished and a fascination with the dietary supplement industry was born.

That was back in the early 1980s, long before Cannon was elected to represent the district that may be home to more supplement companies than anywhere else in the nation.
