FDA: Cheerios Are A Drug

The FDA announced yesterday that Cheerios will now be treated like a drug with the FDA monitoring the claim that the breakfast cereal can reduce one’s cholesterol.  The FDA indicated that they found serious violations of the Federal food, Drug and Cosmetic Act.  Remember, this is the same federal  agency that contends that your own stem cells are a biologic drug over which they have jurisdiction.

A patient summarized it well:

Why stop there? It can be clinically proven that food is the only cure for death by starvation, therefore grocery stores will have to become drug stores, and instead of a shopping list we’ll need to carry weekly prescriptions for bread and milk.  For that matter, we would die of thirst before hunger, so at what point does water come under the jurisdiction of the FDA? How about licensing fees for home gardens?



  1. Not to delve off into politics too much, but what we’re seeing is an unprecedented power grab by this administration in almost every facet of our lives – finance industry, auto industry, insurance, healthcare. When/where does it stop???
