    What the real benefit is - comes from dried fruits in general.

    I think they draw fluids into the system.

    Re: Prunes are not a laxative, EU rules

    There are some jokes that, according to EU food rules, some Finnish makkara should actually be classes as pastries, as there is more flour than meat. Some makkara brands in Finland are known as "meat eaters makkara" as they have up to 80% meat.

    Within Finland, makkara is sometimes laughingly referred to as a vegetable.

    Which reminds me of a German joke.

    A guy heads to his local Imbiss (fast food joint) and asks for an order of fleischpflanzerl (meat patties; a burger type item with ground meat, onions, bread all mixed together and fried)... takes it home, chows down... but is not pleased...

    ... the next day he goes back to the fast food place and tells the owner... HEY! Yesterday I had a couple of your fleischpflanzerl and got food poisoning from the meat in them. The owner says... IMPOSSIBLE!... for there is no meat in our fleischpflanzerl!

    The panel is part of assessing the accuracy of healthfood claims. In this case they found it was true (if you eat enough) which directly contradicts the claim of the OP.
    IIRC the water complaint was about the same panel's response to a bottled water manufacturer who wanted to claim on the label that there was a health benefit to drinking their water as it cured dehydration. (in summary) The scientific panel said "well duh!" and rejected it. This was then taken up by the regressive faction as "They deny water helps dehydration!"
    Don't work out, work in.

    Never eat anything that's served in a bucket.

    The entire greatest generation swore by prunes and would never believe anyone that prunes did not assist in evacuation.
