Thanks you so much, Pro. Let us jump straight to it!
People love to hate, and they really love to hate on big companies — whether or not they have a reason to. Companies big companies included are the very backbone of our economy, and they often get a bad rep for little or no reason.
Which brings me to the next point: ZME Science is a science website crazy, right? Nestle is a Swiss multinational food and beverage company.
They truly are what you would call a giant. The first problem was the need for water sanitation. But due to low literacy rates, many mothers were not aware of this, so they mixed the formula with polluted water which put the children at great risks.
But the tiny stomach did notice the difference.
Even if mothers understood the need to boil the water, they might not have had the facilities to do so. UNICEF estimates that a formula-fed child living in disease-ridden and unhygienic conditions is between 6 and 25 times more likely to die of diarrhea and four times more likely to die of pneumonia than a breastfed child.
Another problem was that mothers tended to use less formula than needed — to make the jar last longer, resulting in many infants receiving inadequate amounts.
But even if the water was boiled, and even if the formula was administered in the right proportion and in the right quantity, it is lacking in many of the nutrients and antibodies that breast milk provides. But it gets even worse.
Nestle denies those allegations… sort of. This makes it difficult for us to investigate how, where and when the alleged infringement could have occurred. Some of the allegations are several years old before they are brought to public attention, which also could complicate the investigation.
They also later used this approach to promote their bottled water. Several universities and student organizations have also joined the boycott, especially in the UK. There is no clear, public number of lives that were lost due to this aggressive marketing campaign, and of course, Nestle is not directly responsible for their tragedies.
But it was easy for them, as it was easy for everybody to see the risks and the negative effects their formula was having. It was easy for them to save many lives, but they chose the money instead.
Profits before children — check. Image via Sum of Us. The one opinion, which I think is extreme, is represented by the NGOs, who bang on about declaring water a public right. That means that as a human being you should have a right to water.
Even Brabeck, after the media attack that followed, backed down. Meanwhile, Nestle drains the aquifers it controls as much as possible, without any regards to sustainable usage or environmental concerns. In fact, if I could increase [water bottling operations], I would.
An independent analysis puts all their water usage at 1 billion gallons a year. But other areas in the world have it even worse than California. In the small Pakistani community of Bhati Dilwan, a former village councilor says children are being sickened by filthy water.
Indeed, unsustainable usage of aquifer water can lead to a significant decrease in water levels, and can even exhaust the aquifer. Greedily using natural resources for profits?
Child labor, abuse, and trafficking Most people love chocolatebut few know the dirty deals behind chocolate production.
