Chocolate- The Bitter Truth

One of the blogs I read posted a link to this documentary, about child labor and child slavery on cocoa farms. It was extremely eye opening. This is just clips 1 of 5, but if you go here (http://www.rageagainsttheminivan.com/2012/10/the-inconvenient-truth-about-your.html) you can view all of them.

I feel like my world is so small. I had no idea child slavery was a problem in chocolate production. How is it possible that thousands of children are being taken from their homes and forced into slavery to produce one of my favorite things, and this is the first time I’ve heard about it? It makes me sick.

I wasn’t even seeking out this information. I was reading a blog this morning (Nothing Left to Paint) and she linked to the videos while talking about Halloween.

It just makes me sick.
