What are your thoughts on this? It seems rather ridcoulous and commical to me that the EU has put a cap on how much cinnamon a company can use on their rolls. If the health effects are so serious then by all means put the information out there, but why not let consumers make the choice for themselves?

The article claims that too much of a compound called coumarin(within cinnamon) can cause liver damage.

Too much protein can do that too.

Too much anything is bad for you.
Case in point: oxygen and water, both in excess, can kill you.
My work here is, finally, done.

Lol ok, I wasn't really the one making that argument. It's the European Union you should talk to.

Believe me, we have the same issues with government across the pond.
New York City tried to ban large sodas in restaurants... you know, because pop is bad for you. Salt, trans fat, and others.

And the medical studies...don't get me started...

When we became too stupid, lazy, and coddled.
Or was it when we became too self-involved and ego-centric (I don't like X, therefore X should be illegal).

Ha, I think it's more in the stripe of ego-centric. If something can be seen as bad in some way, then people have a tendency to think it should necessarily be banned; rather than maintaining a good measure of personal choice.
