Cherries – FDA Ban Natural Arthritis Cure
Cherries - a Natural Arthritis Cure
Cherries have been proven to be the most powerful fruit in the world as a medicine for eliminating gout and reducing inflammation and pain in arthritis. They are so powerful in fact that the FDA in America tried to muzzle cherry growers, trying to prevent them from linking cherries to arthritis care. They are cherries! How can the FDA ban natural arthritis cures?
It has been said that cherries are better than any arthritis drugs. It has been suggested that if the truth were known, pharmaceutical companies would lose billions in profits from arthritis drugs.
Eating cherries every day controls levels of uric acid, therefore preventing gout. Cherries are a very safe way to eliminate swelling and pain. Fresh cherries are obviously the best source, but cooked cherries and their juice are just as beneficial, as are cherry products such as; soft gel capsules, natural cereal bars with cherries, dried cherries, glacé cherries etc.
A Natural Arthritis Cure
FDA Ban Cherries?
Pharmaceutical companies obviously hope that the public don't find out how beneficial cherries are, but the fact is that cherries contain everything one needs to fight against arthritis.
A trial period of a month eating cherries every day (or cherry products) has proved in many cases, to completely banish pain from arthritis and gout.
It has been reported (but not confirmed) that the FDA has tried to stop cherry growers from distributing information on the health benefits of cherries.
What is confirmed, however, is that the FDA sent letters to cherry marketing companies, threatening them with legal action. They were told they should remove scientific information from their websites, describing health benefits of the natural medicine found in cherries. They claimed that when cherry growers give out scientific information on health benefits, such as anthocyanins (found in cherries) which reduce inflammation, they are declaring cherries to be drugs. Therefore, if cherries are drugs, they need FDA approval to be sold in the USA.
Ludicrously, they claim that if cherry growers want to promote the health benefits of cherries, they are promoting cherries as a drug! They then claim that they need FDA approval, as a drug!
Wow! A cherry is a fruit, no doubt with healing properties, but a fruit nonetheless.
These reports come from the USA, but what do the rest of the world feel about these arguments?
Is cherry a fruit? Is cherry a drug?
It seems unbelievable to me that they're even asking these questions, but the one thing that is proven beyond a doubt is that cherries are one of the best things in the world for gout and arthritis.
