Can Cherries And Chiropractic Care Be Better Than Aspirin? San Diego Chiropractor Reveals The Findings!

By Dr. Michael Pritsker, DC

A United States Rep. named Ron Paul, a republican from Texas in the past has introduced a bill that would curb restrictions imposed by the FDA and FTC regarding health claims for dietary supplements. Why would he do that in this regard? Aren’t these restrictions good for the consumer to make sure they don’t get ripped off by snake oil salesmen making false claims when it comes to health?

Maybe it is the case. But it also may not be the case. Check this story interesting story out and decide for yourself. This is the Cherry Grower’s Story. Back in 1999 a peer-reviewed report came out in the Journal of Natural Products, published by the American Chemical Society, the world’s largest scientific society. This report had some interesting conclusions.

The research study concluded that cherries that are tart may relieve pain better than aspirin and many other anti-inflammatory drugs on the market. It turns out that consumption of about 20 cherries in total reduces inflammation in a similar manner as aspirin or Cox-2 inhibiting drugs. And this is of course without the lethal side effects of gastric bleeding or vitamin depletion associated with these drugs. The molecules in cherries are called anthocyanins. They work to reduce inflammation at ten times less dosage than aspirin. This was noted in the Journal of Natural Products in 1999. Pills that provide concentrated anthocyanins would make it even easier to consumers to achieve these health benefits and overall well-being.

When cherry growers began to cite this scientific study, the FDA followed by sending a warning letter to 29 companies that market cherries threatening regulatory action if they did not remove the scientific information regarding the anti-inflammatory properties of cherries from their websites. The FDA declared cherries to be “drugs” once health claims for a disease were associated with the product.

Bob Underwood, who sells capsules containing concentrated cherry paste, was quoted in an Associated Press story in 2006. He said we have the government telling people to eat more fruits and vegetables, and we have the U.S. Department of Agriculture funding some of these fruit studies. He stated that now we have another arm of the federal government that says you can’t use the research.”

According to the website LewRockwell, “The Health Freedom Protection Act would stop the FDA from censoring truthful claims about the curative, mitigative, or preventative effects of dietary supplements,” says Scott Tips of the National Health Federation, a Monrovia, California-based organization that is leading the charge behind this legislation.” Sad to see that legislation is needed to stop the censorship of truthful claims… isn’t it?
