South of Tonight

Sporadic murmurs and other pomegranates from a one-way street

Coca-Cola is trying to be environmentally responsible. Good for them, kinda…

How about nutritionally responsible? Nutrition labels? Big deal. Old news. Those labels have been around for a while. How about removing HFCS that is made from GMO corn, that requires atrocious amounts of petrochemical fertilizers that are then washed down the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers to the Gulf of Mexico creating a dead zone? All those acres poisoned by chemical fertilizers could better be used to grow crops that would provide healthy, environmentally and nutritionally sound food crops. Instead, they produce GMO corn that is fed to millions of cattle forced into crowded, filthy feed lots eating a product they are not meant to consume thus requiring antibiotics that contaminate our beef. And how about all the corn products under multiple pseudonyms that pervade human food products? If Coca-Cola wants to be environmentally and nutritionally responsible at the same time, they can remove high fructose corn syrup from all their products. That would be great news on Earth Day.
