One response to “Washington Post: ‘Functional food’ is hot, but its claims of health benefits rely on flimsy data

  1. “Health claims weren’t allowed on food products until about 20 years ago. As the FDA saw it, such a link would mean the products were being marketed as drugs. And if food was being promoted that way, manufacturers had to conduct clinical studies to provide evidence of safety and efficacy.”

    Simple solution: get rid of the FDA. Restore freedom to the marketplace for food and drugs.
