Really Quite Shocking

Yes, the claim itself and the blase' approach to weight mgmt is most definitely concerning, but what is really shocking is that this product has FOSHU approval. I lived in Japan for 4 years and obtaining FOSHU approval for items MUCH LESS controversial was difficult. How did Pepsi do it? Is the Japanese gov't more lax? Did they not study the situation with Olestra & the US FDA? Many things still to be learned here.
