Think You’re A Conscientious Shopper?

If so, you may find cracked’s article on ‘The Awful Truth Behind 5 Items Probably On Your Grocery List‘ informative.
Some of the products are reasonably well know for their potential human rights issues, such as Coca Cola as well as Chiquita and Dole bananas, but I’d not heard about the issues Iams pet foods were actively involved in, nor about Nestle Nesquik (though obviously Nestle’s record in Africa with baby milk already has them high on many people’s boycott list).
Anyway, have a read through, and see what our wonderful multi-national conglomerates have been up to this last past 1/2 century 🙁
