We’ve all got to eat, but you have a choice when it comes to where you get your food — and specifically, which companies get a piece of your food budget.
When you get the low-down on some of the evil companies that follow, you’ll understand why we say … NEVER buy your food from them again!
The cereal giant produces some of the worst cereals for kids — those with the least nutritional value and the highest amounts of sugar. But the real kicker is how aggressively they market these cereals to impressionable youngsters.
From 2008-2011, Kellogg increased child-targeted TV ads for Froot Loops by 79%, nearly doubled banner advertising on children’s websites for its sugary, child-targeted brands, and even introduced the first child-targeted “advergame app” for phones, centered on Apple Jacks.[i] They’re trying to hook your kids on sugar … don’t let them.
5. Sparboe Farms (Eggs)
One of the largest egg producers in the United States, Sparboe Farms was cited by the FDA for at least 13 violations of rules meant to prevent salmonella outbreaks. Undercover video taken by animal rights group Mercy for Animals also showed unsanitary conditions and serious acts of animal cruelty. The allegations were so severe that McDonald’s and Target both stopped using Sparboe Farms as a source of eggs … will you, too?
As the world’s largest food company, Nestle sells 70 different brand names of bottled water, and accounts for one-third of the U.S. bottled water market. Not only has bottled water been implicated as a scam for not being much different than ordinary tap water, the amount of plastic bottles entering the environment is now obscene.
Plus, Nestle has been accused of aggressively marketing infant formula in third-world countries, leading to reductions in breastfeeding rates. And then there are the accusations of being involved in child labor and forced labor[ii] … need we go on?
Tyson is the second largest chicken producer in the United States, but did you know their plants have dumped so many toxins into water supplies, not to mention released them into the air, that they pled guilty to 20 felony violations of the Clean Water Act? And the EPA filed enforcement action against them for violating the Clean Air Act?[iii]
Not to mention, for years they labeled their chicken “antibiotic-free” even though they regularly treated the birds with antimicrobials.
Soft drinks are far from healthy, but the real reason to boycott Coca-Cola has to do with their crimes against humanity. Evidence uncovered by investigative journalist and author Michael Blanding has shown Coca-Cola may have been complicit with paramilitary murders of union members in South America, while draining and polluting local water sources in India and Mexico.[iv]
Why haven’t you heard about this before? Coca-Cola spends nearly $3 billion a year on advertising to keep its iconic image[v] … ‘nuff said.
Creator of Agent Orange, PCBs, dioxin, recombinant bovine growth hormone (rBGH) and genetically modified seeds, Monsanto has paid out billions of dollars in legal settlements for all of their disease-causing contamination and wrongdoing over the years[vi] … and they are aggressively pushing their GM crops throughout the entire world — to the extent that one day soon the entire food supply may be contaminated with genetically engineered DNA, of which no one knows what the future consequences will be.
