I'm sick of it! Pls use your voice to say NO MORE!
How many of us did you get sick? Do you even know or care? Forget
about the immediate headaches, pains, throwing up, diarrhea and then
some. What about the fact that you KILLED villi in our guts that takes
nutrients from food to then FEED us and keep us ALIVE!!!! Is money that
important to you? How do you sleep at night?
You were happily handing out poison to young children and sick suffering adults this weekend
at a GLUTEN FREE EXPO!?? How on earth do these big companies live with
them selves? I'll tell you how, very comfortably. In there nice comfy
mansions and don't give a damn about the people you are hurting some
maybe fatally? What will it take for this to stop? one of these
companies to KILL someone. And you big companies are the ones keeping
brands like mine who actually give a damn about people and what they are
eating off the shelves? Only recourse we have folks is to STOP BUYiNG
the crap and making them money our lives and lives of our children
depend on it. Demand better in your stores and demand better for what's
on your table. Do NOT be lied to any longer!
