  • WTF??? Who in the world came up with this ridiculous idea? Just because they lower cholesterol does not mean they mess with the chemical balances in your body. There are other foods that have been noted to help lower cholesterol. But I guess by the way this person is thinking, they need to list cinnamon as a drug because it can lower blood sugar in diabetics?

  • All food with labels is considered a drug, thats why they have labels.

    This is FDA law. nutrition has the ability to cure even heart disease(not curable by manufactured medication).

    Wooohooo! I'm going to pass the CPhT Exam!

  • Yes, you have been feeding your kids more drugs(poisons, other chemicals) than you know, since the age of the first food manufacturing plant.

    Do you know what preservatives are?

  • It's so funny and stupid at the same time, there are so many types of foods that help lower cholesterol and they don't say anything about it. It's funny because it's like well your right it does help with medical reasons and stupid because who cares, it's not harming the people who eat it, if anything it's making them better so why the fuss!!
