We must all change our eating habits. No processed foods ! We are , as a species , just living on credit. Future eating cultures abound, most poor people don't have a choice but richer countries can act, can't they? will they? I wonder.? Most people at apathetic and don't see further than the nose on their face. Sad , we have so much potential.

So why do people eat them???.... crazy. Veganism and more conscious eating will fix all these issues very quickly. I love that you love animals BTW.

I agree
with all of you! Animals are one of God's greatest gifts to us and about the most abused. They only kill to eat, fight only to defend themselves and their families and live in harmony with the environment.. They dont destroy it! I admire the beauty of all living creatures and it's my passion to fight for all of them against the evil selfishness of humans who seek to destroy environments that aren't even theirs!

My daughter and I were shopping for soap the other day. She whinged and whined when I said that we were not buying anything with a Palmolive brand. "But I want the vanilla smelling soap and its the only brand that has it." Tough love. My only consolation is that the orangutangs don't think so.

If there is such a thing as Peanut oil, then there should be an abundance of Soya oil or Grape seed oil?

Yes; thank you, Zamina -- where I live (semi-rural) there are lots alternatives! Coconut oil, for one, is the healthiest oil and it tastes great.

Vegetable oil is what was used before cheap-but very unhealthy-palm oil became popular.

Hi Matt, we are asking snack food companies to reduce their consumption of palm oil, to use alternatives where possible and to make sure that any palm oil they use has not resulted in forest destruction or social conflict in Indonesia and Borneo Malaysia. In regards to alternative oils they can use oils that are not grown in the tropics and have been produced responsibly including olive oil, canola oil, corn oil and safflower oil. The American Heart Association also recommends eating these...

Hi Matt, we are asking snack food companies to reduce their consumption of palm oil, to use alternatives where possible and to make sure that any palm oil they use has not resulted in forest destruction or social conflict in Indonesia and Borneo Malaysia. In regards to alternative oils they can use oils that are not grown in the tropics and have been produced responsibly including olive oil, canola oil, corn oil and safflower oil. The American Heart Association also recommends eating these monounsaturated oils and polyunsaturated fats instead of processed palm oil. Another option in the tropics is coconut oil.

Not only in Sumatra, also here in Kenya, people are destroying the forests which are our country"s water towers. Then the during the dry season the citizens and their political godfathers cry of hunger in the country. What abunch of idiots and hypocrites.

Boycott? I would gladly house an orangutang. But how can I justify boycoytting a list of companies this long when I cannot afford to buy a meal consisting of more than cornmeal qnd a frew cans of Luck's Beans (listed on boycott list)? And I live in America, am college educated, and i love and have compassion for animals. I just have a little more for my children and spouse.

There are lots and lots of truly inexpensive foods on the market that do not use PALM OIL in their production. Just take the time to check labels! Give it a try!
