    FDA to ban walnuts?

    They are too healthy for you therefor they must be deemed a controlled substance...

    Diamond Food Inc. 2/22/10

    Yet FDA allows Frito-Lay potato chips a mostly fried product to be advertised as “heart healthy”

    Ridiculous.

    They are just telling them that they are misrepresenting their product by making unsupported claims, false advertising as it were....

    "The back of your product label also bears the following statement: "The omega-3 in walnuts can help you get the proper balance of fatty acids your body needs for promoting and maintaining heart health. In fact, according to the Food and Drug Administration, supportive but not conclusive research shows that eating 1.5 oz of walnuts per day, as part of a low saturated fat and low cholesterol diet, and not resulting in increased caloric intake, may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. Please refer to nutrition information for fat content and other details about the nutritional profile of walnuts." Although FDA exercises enforcement discretion over the last two sentences of this statement, which meet the criteria for a qualified health claim for walnuts and coronary heart disease, the last two sentences read in conjunction with the first sentence makes the entire statement an unauthorized health claim.

    The statement suggests that the evidence supporting a relationship between walnuts and coronary heart disease is related to the omega-3 fatty acid content of walnuts. There is not sufficient evidence to identify a biologically active substance in walnuts that reduces the risk of CHD. Therefore, the above statement is an unauthorized health claim. This letter is not intended to be an inclusive review of your products and their labeling. It is your responsibility to ensure that all of your products comply with the Act and its implementing regulations."

    not yet plucked as to slacken the seams
    and drag down the features of age,
    no folds or creases from unkempt wear
    eyes of tranquilty, crystalline-beads
    no sign of despair in their hair, nor their hearts
    but oh they have yet to be experienced and that makes aging so very worth it...ML circa2012

    They're idiots. If they choose to take this route with Walnuts, they might as well go after all whole foods.

    There is protocol that needs to be followed to label foods with such attributes.

    All the FDA seems to be marking is the way this company is marketing there products.

    Do I agree that the likes of Lay's can make certain retarded claims NO! But I my guess would be if the company provided the proper documentation for there labeling there would be no issue.

    And HFCS. I'm willing to put down good money that if that shit was taken out of the American diet we'd see a precipitous drop in body weight.

    Website
    Based on claims made on your firm's website, we have determined that your walnut products are promoted for conditions that cause them to be drugs because these products are intended for use in the prevention, mitigation, and treatment of disease.

    they just want them labeled as food not something for medicinal use.

    you don't get what you wish for ~ you get what you work for

    That's why you all should pulse walnuts. And take PCT afterwards.

    I was working in a rural area yesterday and stopped at a convenience store because I was thirsty. I couldn't find a low calorie or diet drink in the place.
    The fatso behind the counter asked "can I help you?" because I was staring in bewilderment at the massive array of softdrinks, juices and other crap on display. So I asked "don't you have any diet stuff or water?" She said "no we don't drink that shit around here." Who would have guessed that?
