please go research the word cumulative..
Please look at the study.
The rats were give 1000mg a day for 180 days. that's 180, 000/mg in 6 months. for an animal that weighs what, a few pounds?
The FDA says 7.8, let's call it 8mg/day. For your weight.
If you want to have the same outcome the rate had, you'd have to ingest not 1000/mg, but something like 70,000/mg a day, every day, for 6 months.
or 12,600,000/mg in 6 months.
Now tell me, if I ingest 12 million mg of sugar, or salt or even vitamin c, in 6 months, would there be any side effects?
Basic maths vs fearmongering.
I am all for government regulation of food and drugs, but no human is going to ingest millions of mg of this stuff in 6 months.
btw., to get the same amount, at the FDA max level (8mg/day) would take almost 16 MILLION DAYS.
That's about 43 THOUSAND years.
