Quoted Text
An even more unusual approach is being explored by Alan Fogelman and his team, who have genetically engineered a tomato to produce a small peptide, 6F, that mimics the action of apo A-1. They then fed the tomatoes to mice with high LDL levels. After consuming the tomatoes along with a high-fat and high-calorie diet, there were a number of signs suggesting a beneficial effect, including significantly lower levels of inflammation, higher levels of the antioxidant paraoxonase, higher HDL levels, and less atherosclerotic plaque.

Why, what's wrong with just good foods, every time they change something, something goes wrong. Changing our foods seems to have been the catalyst for much of our bad health as it is.

Just my thoughts.

The proof is in the pudding! No thanks, I won't be a guinea pig only to find out the repercussions down the road. I'm so happy that I come from a family who was always been cautious about taking meds.

Yeah, but don't rats do best on a low fat, high fiber diet? More useful, IMO, is to see if these "drugs" would work on a rat already eating right (for its species) to see if there's any additional benefit. It sounds like they're intending this drug to be used in place of dietary changes, not in conjunction with them.

So now the term "food as medicine" is being spun to include GM foods. What's next?
