My Blog Supports Health; It Opposes, But Doesn't Necessarily Prevent Disease


43(B)log: FTC ALJ rules many Pom ads misleading, unsubstantiated:

Though I don’t think the opinion explicitly says so in so many words, it implicitly acknowledges what I think any honest observer of the general consumer market would have to: ordinary consumers are unlikely to regularly distinguish between a “supports health” claim and a “prevents disease” claim in any relevant way, meaning that the DSHEA’s framework is fundamentally rotten.
