Life Extension Magazine Profiles Walnuts & The FDA

Life Extension® has published 57 articles that describe the health benefits of walnuts. Some of this same scientific data is featured on the website of Diamond Foods, Inc., a distributor of packaged walnuts.
The FDA has determined that walnuts sold by Diamond Foods cannot be legally marketed because the walnuts “are not generally recognized as safe and effective” for the medical conditions referenced on Diamond Foods’ website.  According to the FDA, these walnuts are now classified as “drugs” and the “unauthorized health claims” cause them to become “misbranded,” thus subjecting them to government “seizure or injunction.”  Let’s take a look at the science supporting the consumption of walnuts to see what the FDA is up to … and what you can do to stop it!  Read the article here. Walnuts & FDA
