Poppy Seed Drug Tests

We've all heard of this, but....

The Discovery channel program Mythbusters put the poppy seed claim to the test, feeding mythbuster Adam an enitre loaf of poppyseed cake and Jamie three poppy seed bagels. Tests were administered every half hour, and Adam tested positive after the first test. Jamie was slower, taking two hours to test positive after eating the bagels. Both tested positive for the remainder of the day, but were clean the next morning, 18 hours later. Myth status: confirmed.

  1. some show on mtv did the same thing around 2000. that really sucks for the number of people in the world who have no reason to know and/or care about the poppy seeds and get drug tested. they're in a lot of things besides bagels and cake too!
