PETA doesn't always go after the fur folk, the chicken or turkey farms, or the slaughter houses. Evidently, candy companies are also on their hit list.
Mars, maker of those yummy little nuggets of chocolate joy called M&Ms, evidently use lab rats to test all that yummy chocolate goodness by force-feeding them. I mean, c'mon; they don't have to use rats. I'd be glad to volunteer to eat lots of chocolate. But then again ... they cut open the little guys to see how the chocolate "ingredients" change their blood vessels.
This made me think about the Hightower column we ran a few weeks ago on the fact that there isn't real chocolate in chocolate anymore. So if there isn't any, and they have to do lab tests, what is in the chocolate that I enjoy so much? (And when do I start to mutate? Maybe it already happened, and no one wants to tell me.)
