And they are not shipping it to feed the hungry, those people are still starving.

There are a lot of issues out there, but this one...Unless I live off the land, I am forced to be their guinea pigs. That upsets me to no end. I have no idea what foods they are messing with because they don't have to disclose anything. If that isn't upsetting, I don't know what is. All I want to do is to raise awareness. A lot of people just don't know what they are doing to their food. I find it hard to be apathetic on this issue.
