Noted and signed, just like any other action against palm oil. I'm happy to notice that in Europe, there's an always growing amount of citizens which are, SLOWLY BUT SURELY, being informed of the huge threats behind palm oil, and who're now boycotting any product which has it on the ingredients list.

The danger from Palm Oil is immense. The so called green energy is destroying the forests. Palm oil is in so many products and those companies need to be boycotted. When are Governments and Companies going to look at the bigger picture?They have known about this for half a century - criminals.

Signed-Seems saving the Orangatangs has made the palm oil people strike elsewhere- I thought it would bethe Amazon basin

Grocery shopping has become a time investment experience. Although, I avoid packaged products, almost entirely, you still have to read labels. I have found HFCS in products, I never thought I would.

Well, I guess, practice makes perfect! (If only that was true.)
