I read an article a couple of days ago. The tag line said it all, but a wentence in the first para highlighted the real issues:
'Last week, a former GMA executive told Politico that to him, the food industry lobbying group seems like “the dinosaur waiting to die.”' Seems like the beast is finally dying. What we really do need to know though is what new 'Perfect Beast' will replace it? We may have dealt a minor blow for our rights to clean food and healthy planet but we most certainly haven't finally n this battle. Its merely just beginning. You can bet your last breath that they will win by fair means or foul. More likely the latter. So lets stop patting ourselves on the back and knuckle down to business because this is the beginning of the long haul.

2 typos: 'sentence' not 'wentence' in first line (fat finger syndrome) and first word on line 8 should be 'win'
My bad!

Good for the people. Companies should care about what the consumers want. People come first. Thanks Kathy

I'll believe Nestle's claim about "principles" when they quit stealing water to bottle and sell.
