Kraft Foods is literally slaughtering the people of the small town of Wilmington, IL. The company dumped over 1,000 barrel drums of lethal poisons and over 1,600 semi truck loads in the vicinity of this ommunity. Kraft Foods poisons sat out in open ponds and the land for 30 years seeping into the 20 ft wells, which provide the citizens with drinking water.
The macabre result: 21 suicides, 21 breast cancers out of 40 graduating class, lymphomas, leukemias, hysterectomies, infertilites, dead babies etc all in a 3 mile radius!!
But Kraft simply doesn't care and refuses to remove their poison. Ban Kraft Food until they come get their toxic waste out of this neighbourhood ~! ►SIGN this urgent petition◄

this is horrible but I am wondering, what did the 21 suicides have to do with kraft food and their dumping of hazerdous waste??
