It figures that this happened after the FDA banned free speech about the benefits of Cherries. Evil FDA, always promoting the profit margins of big pharmaceutical corporations over that of the American people

It figures the FDA did this after they banned free speech about the benefits of cherries. The FDA always puts the profit margins of rich corporations ahead of the American people. They even allowed Bayer to sell Aids tainted blood. But of course this cite will censor such information because they think it's ok to put corporate interests ahead of the interests of the people and they don't want anyone to question actions that are in the best interest of huge pharmaceutical corporations.

Oh, sorry, I didn't realize the comment page was on a different page than the posting. My mistake, sorry for accusing this site of censoring information.
