And the en­vi­ron­ment?

Woman (UK) - - Health Report -

Palm oil’s dev­as­tat­ing ef­fect on our planet has al­ready been well doc­u­mented; only a tiny per­cent­age of palm oil that you find in prod­ucts will be from of­fi­cially-ap­proved, sus­tain­able sources. So by the time it ends up in our fridges or larders, hun­dreds of habi­tats will have been de­stroyed in the process. To put this into per­spec­tive, in In­done­sia alone, it’s es­ti­mated that ar­eas the size of 146 foot­ball pitches are lost ev­ery hour, as man­u­fac­tur­ing races to keep up with demand. and this is putting wildlife, in­clud­ing en­dan­gered species such as orang­utans, at risk.
