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.
