But I love chocolate!

Postby help6363 » Thu Sep 27, 2007 9:10 pm

Hey! :D

I found the following in an Australian Magazine
called Slimming (p. 6, September issue). It's a letter to
the Editor...Oh, does anyone know if it's true????
Orangutans are my favourite animal! Here's the

" I have a serious addiction to chocolate. Sadly,
while on holiday in Borneo, I discovered that my
addiction is the direct result of the imminent
extinction of the orangutan. Few chocoholics know
that the vegetable oil in our favourite treat is palm
oil, produced from vast plantations in Borneo, where
native forests have been burned or logged and replaced by
acres of palm oil trees. Orangutans have no food or
shelter and are often killed, maimed or eaten when
they venture into the plantations." (Slimmimg
Magazine, September, p. 6)

I referenced this..... Mods, is it okay to post, please? :D

Please tell me it isn't true! My two favourite
things are in conflict. Boohoo
