Is Pomegranate juice not so wonderful after all?


A few weeks ago, Doug posted an item about the medical breakthrough of the pomegranate

Now we learn that POM, a major producer of pomegranate products, is  being attacked by the FTC (Federal Trade Commission) for their advertising claims.

According to an NPR article written by Julie Rovner, the FTC is slamming the makers of POM Wonderful juice and POMx supplements for "false and unsubstantiated claims that their products will prevent or treat heart disease, prostate cancer, and erectile dysfunction."


Read Rovner’s article and see what you think.

In the meantime, we’ll continue to consume - and enjoy - our favorite juice.

  1. I don't drink that brand anyway, it is too expensive. They sell large jars of pomegranate juice from Georgia and Turkey for $3. POM might be exagerating the health benefits the same way they do their prices.
