Boycott any product with Palm Oil in it. When the oil is not specified, it is most likely Palm Oil.

Big corporations and the corrupt politicians protecting them will tell you anything to make them look good.

If corporations have their hand in any report, it can't be believed. The profit motive causes all that stand to benefit, to resort to any misinformation/lies that are needed to promote their own self interest. Anybody stupid enough to believe them shouldn't be allow out of their houses.

It's very simple. People need to stop buying products containing palm oil. All those cakes and cookies you buy in the store probably use it. I looked at the ingredients of all the Entenmann's cakes in the store. Every one that I looked at has palm oil as the second ingredient. Nutella uses palm oil. I do not buy any product that uses palm oil and I have e-mailed those companies to tell them why they should stop using it. That's the way to put an end to this. If there were a petition I would sign it and pledge to stop supporting those companies.
