    Here's something interesting: according to the FDA, cherries are now drugs.
    [SIZE=+1][/SIZE][SIZE=+1][/SIZE] [SIZE=+1]I've been looking into tart cherry juice concentrates today. I've found that there is one type that contains all sorts of natural antioxidants, plus a bunch of other good stuff, including melatonin and more. This type of cherry is called the Montmorency cherry.[/SIZE] [SIZE=+1][/SIZE][SIZE=+1][/SIZE] [SIZE=+1]People are taking the concentrate or eating the cherries for pain which about 2/3 of the US now has due to fluoride poisoning...and those savvy to the cherry benefits are discontinuing prescription drugs as a result. They're claiming it's also healing all sorts of things, including cancers, gout, arthritis.[/SIZE] [SIZE=+1][/SIZE] [SIZE=+1][/SIZE][SIZE=+1]Looking closer, nearly all of the many companies I looked into this afternoon have received WARNING letters from the FDA stating that because of their claims about the healing properties of tart cherries, the cherry juice and/or cherries are therefore considered to be a "drug," and the vendors must file a "New Drug Application." What crap is this!!!!!!!![/SIZE] [SIZE=+1][/SIZE] [SIZE=+1][/SIZE][SIZE=+1]Big pharma must be very, very scared about tart cherry juice. I am, therefore, going to order some right away. [/SIZE] [SIZE=+1][/SIZE] [SIZE=+1]Here are two examples of FDA letters - note that they specifically cited the suggestion that the consumer can stop taking prescriptions if they will begin taking tart cherries in some form. [/SIZE] [SIZE=+1][/SIZE] [SIZE=+1]Anyway, it appears that as long as food is empty of all nutrients, then it is "food" - but if it has any health-promoting nutrients or benefits at all, then it is considered a new drug in the US, hence a "New Drug Application" must be made.[/SIZE] [SIZE=+1][/SIZE] [SIZE=+1][/SIZE] [SIZE=+1]http://www.casewatch.org/fdawarning/prod/2005/seaquist.shtml[/SIZE] [SIZE=+1]http://www.casewatch.org/fdawarning/prod/2005/overlake.shtml[/SIZE][SIZE=+1][/SIZE] [SIZE=+1][/SIZE] [SIZE=+1][/SIZE] [SIZE=+1]Here's the list of all of them, dated 2005. The firms are all still advertising the same health benefits on their sites, so I guess they've given the FDA a Bronx raspberry re the Montmorency cherry scandal.

    Man, I wish you'd combine some of your posts, maybe 3 subjects to a post so you don't swamp the whole page. This cherry thing is nothing strange. Any company that sells any product, be it a juice or anything, and claims it heals something, has to have it approved by the FDA. On the other hand, someone selling cherries or cherry juice for eating or drinking, without making health claims, isn't going to need FDA approval.
