Keep up the fight

Dear Editor,

Re: Samoa Coconut Clusters responsds 

I agree with you. The pharmaceutical companies, the meat industry, sugar companies, basically the big bad food cartel, sponsor many of these so-called health bodies and fund their “research”. 

Edwin Tamasese is right, it’s about trying to protect their market share by discrediting and passing on misinformation about healthier and potentially threatening products.

It’s important to keep up the information fight online, backed by impartial, real science. 

And you’re right Wendy, this sort of underhanded slighting and eventual corporate imperialism will eventually close in on small economies and industries and swallow them up! 

Look at the banana industry of the Caribbean nations that was strangled under Clinton’s administration during the 1990’s. 

America banned imports from the West Indies and went with Chiquita, which is American owned. Many farmers committed suicide; economies in these islands went belly up.
