Please cite your sources.

From all accounts, Olestra IS banned in Canada (Canadian ban adds to woes for P&G's olestra) and pretty much everywhere else except the good ol` USA.

As for "pulled voluntarily," Proctor & Gamble boasts that "More than one million servings of foods with olestra are eaten every day" so not much pulling going on, eh?

And your claim of "never a sinclge case of it" [sic">, even Frito-Lay admits it, albeit only in internal memos.

#2) point of fact - it's not "banned" no, but it`s also not used anymore (pulled voluntarily by the company). The "anal leakage" thing became such a HUUUUUUUGE public laughingstock for the company (though supposedly there was never a sinclge case of it actually happening), they pulled it. It`s now used as an industrial lubricant. lol.

I am so glad many of these are banned in Canada.

randomxnp: Yes, even drinking too much water can kill you. It's called Water intoxication or dilutional hyponatremia. It results in an imbalance in electrolytes which disturbs brain function.

It`s rare, but it shows that even too much of a good thing can be harmful.

If I roll my eyes any harder, they're going to pop out. Shock journalism failed this author.
