Lazy Cakes - Warning
A popular relaxation food is causing
concern to area wide consumers.
Lazy Cakes, which appears to be a
traditional brownie, are being sold
legally in convenience stores across
Houston. Each Lazy Cake has eight
milligrams of melatonin baked in,
enough to create side effects in the
healthiest adult. Melatonin is a
hormone made by the pineal gland, a
small gland in the brain. Melatonin
helps control your sleep and wake
cycles. Very small amounts of it are
found in foods such as meats,
grains, fruits and vegetables. You
can also buy it as a supplement. As
a result of Lazy Cakes being sold as
a dietary supplement, they are not
under the control of the Food and
Drug Administration. "Lazy Cakes"
are considered the first legal
relaxation brownie; however these
treats pose serious health risks.
There has been a reported case of an
adolescent being rushed to the
hospital after biting into this
brownie. Please be aware of the
possible effects this product may
have on you and/or your child.
