"The US National Library of Medicine contains 35 peer-reviewed studies indicating that eating walnuts improves vascular health and may reduce heart attack risk. Diamond Foods, which packages walnuts, made reference to these health claims on its website. The FDA then classified Diamond Foods' walnuts as a 'drug!' The FDA knows that this classification triggers testing requirements costing billions of dollars. This forced Diamond Foods to remove all scientific information about the health preserving benefits of walnuts. This is what I have come to expect from The State in general, and the FDA in particular." (11/09/11)
