Tell Hershey and Mars: There Is Nothing Sweet About GMOs! ACTION

Health & Wellness  (tags: family, children, health, gmo, valentine, candy, chocolate, protection )

- 1356 days ago -
Almost as ubiquitous as the red and pink wrapped Valentine's Day treats at this time are the genetically engineered ingredients within these products. Some of America's favorite sweets, even dressed-up in their Valentine's Day best, are still chock full

Hershey also takes out 'dead peasant' life insurance policies on employees without their knowledge or consent with Hershey as the beneficiary, as outlined in "Caoitalism: a love story" by Michael Moore

Signed thanks Nancy. Boycotts are the way to go with companies like these. GMOs and outsourcing of jobs are two excellent reasons to go after their bottom line

I guess they really can't claim to be the "Great American chocolate bar" any more. Didn't know they moved to Mexico and put all the folks in PA out of jobs. Maybe their new claim can be "The Mediocre Mexican Slave Wages GMO crap" bar. Yeah, sounds about right. I used to do commercials-I will be happy to write a few for them. They won't like them-but it will be truth in advertising.

Add to the above mentioned the Palm Oil and Child Labor practices, and chocolate is definately becoming a cautionary treat at best..

GMO's can kill children and people with liver disease. Bars that are full of nuts and seeds are dangerous.
I know from personal experience from eating a Kashi bar. I no longer eat hershey's or any processed food.
