kingoomieiii: If you start saying your product works like a medication, that's how the FDA will treat it.If you take motor oil and slap a sticker on it saying "Cures Cancer!", you can expect to have it pulled from shelves unless you also slap on a sticker saying:"These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease."
Ambivalence: I used to make soap
MBooda: Damn, isn't it tough enough being a walnut farmer? [outside-satan.trailertheater.com image 480x360]/you smell like canned tamales
Ambivalence: The law says that if you make any medicinal claims about a substance, that substsance has to be approved by the FDA for that purpose.For example, I used to make soap (as a hobby) and the law states that you cannot ascribe any property to a soap/lotion/etc beyond "moisturizing". Even if a particular essential oil is known to be good for acne, if it's not FDA approved to treat acne, you cannot claim that a soap that contains that essential oil "treats acne" or is "anti-acne".Walnuts may be healthy and good for you, but implying or claiming it will cure disease or make you healthier by eating them greatly exaggerates what benefits someone can expect to have from them (to the point of fraud).
Capt.Plywood: Well, they sure taste bad enough to be medicinal. Bitter shaite.
St_Francis_P: The first two posts seem to have covered the subject nicely. Subby must work for Big Walnut.
Aigoo: Right then. So who wants to sue the shiat out of PepsiCo for the blantantly fraudulent implications and claims it makes saying it'll lower your cholesterol and prevent heart disease to eats bags and bags of their heart-healthy chips? Surely that's fraud?

WinoRhino: loki see loki do: Model 8 motherfarking sixteen, yo.Is that the one with the attractive wooden base?
Ambivalence: Walnuts may be healthy and good for you, but implying or claiming it will cure disease or make you healthier by eating them greatly exaggerates what benefits someone can expect to have from them (to the point of fraud).
damageddude: Back in the 70s my parents always kept flat Coca-Cola in the medicine cabinet for upset stomachs based on our pediatrician's advice [wink wink]. If Coca-Cola dared market this medical benefit of their product they would have the FDA up their butt in no time flat.
Aigoo: But walnuts... 50-some papers backing up the claims and no lobbyists. So sorry, walnuts.Follow the money, honey.
