FDA Says Walnuts Are Illegal Drugs
Although there are studies and published papers supporting the claim
that ingesting walnuts improves vascular health and may reduce heart
attack risk, FDA forced a distributor of packaged walnuts to remove
these claims from their website.
Instead of considering these studies, FDA has effectively censored the information and our right to be informed.
On the other hand, FDA doesn't take any stand against the health claims
made by Frito-Lay®'s, a subsidiary of the PepsiCo, Inc that promote
high acrylamide-containing fried carbohydrates as a healthy food.
When carbohydrate foods are cooked at high temperature (as occurs
when potatoes are fried in sunflower oil to make potato chips), a toxic
compound called acrylamide is formed.
According to the National Cancer Institute, "acrylamide is considered
to be a mutagen and a probable human carcinogen, based mainly on
studies in laboratory animals."
Support the Free Speech About Science
bill to put an end to
censorship of science, and to enable the natural health products
community to share peer-reviewed scientific findings with the public.
