  • New Study by Nestle

    Looks like Nestle is sponsoring a study on whole grains to help promote a new line of Lean Cuisine coming to stores in the next year. What do you think? Is it automatically suspicious because of their possible profit from any good outcomes?

    I would say that anyone interested in a certain outcome of a study should not be sponsoring the study.

      New study by Nestle finds that Quik chocolate syrup and powder are both low in fat and are essential to support a healthy immune system.

        Any study by a corporation that stands to benefit from people following its advice is a conflict of interest in my mind.

          I guess it's possible for people sponsored by Nestle to look for the truth without fear or favour. I honestly doubt it's likely.

          In other news Nestle said:

          "Panorama has been unable to provide us with any evidence whatsoever of child labour being used to produce cocoa beans purchased by Nestlé.
          http://news.bbc.co.uk/panorama/hi/fr...00/8583499.stm

          That issue has been simmering for awhile - since at least 2002. In 2005 a suit was started in Washington DC under two federal statutes, the Torture Victims Protection Act and the Alien Tort Claims Act:

          The complaint filed by the ILRF alleges the defendants' involvement in the trafficking, torture and forced labour of children who cultivate and harvest cocoa beans, which the companies import from Africa. It has been filed on behalf of three Malian children who were trafficked from Mali into the Ivory Coast and forced to work 12 to 14 hours a day with no pay, little food and sleep, and frequent beatings.
