The research itself is good, but I'm worried that if we discover more and more on this area, the food corporations might use this as an excuse to justify the unhealthiness of their food.

So.....people who are health-conscious still won't buy their food then.....what's the problem? (talk)02:45, 25 September 2010

The food corporations might blame it on the cold and say, 'see, it's not just our food that's causing the problems you know, mate, it's the viruses too. So there.'

dos not imply causation. (talk)04:40, 23 September 2010

I didn't see where correlation was equated with causation. Seemed rather careful to point out the difference. Also stated there was a link which indicated a possible cause to investigate in future research. Quite pointedly, it's also stated this is still research and not a product.

Still, it's cool to read about and sounds promising. (talk)14:34, 23 September 2010
