    Nearly half (46.9%) of consumers surveyed feel misled by food companies making high fructose corn syrup-free claims
    Women (29.2%) and parents (34.2%) are most likely to feel strongly misled by food companies making high fructose corn syrup-free claims
    ↑ These are the same ingredients that Snapple uses and are supposedly "All Natural"↑
    A federal court will decide whether Snapple really was “all natural,” as its label claimed:

    While the case may seem a bit removed from the Health Blog’s usual bailiwick, it touches on an issue that’s hugely important to the drug and device industries: Preemption. That’s the legal doctrine that says when a company’s product follows the rules set by a federal agency — such as the FDA, which regulates food and drinks as well as drugs and medical devices– the company cannot face lawsuits in state court
    A class action lawsuit alleging that the best stuff on earth is actually made from cheap and unhealthy junk is on the verge of reinstatement after being tossed two years ago

    Rumors and myths
    Like many popular brands, Snapple has had urban myths and false rumors occasionally plague its brand. In 1992, rumors began to spread that Snapple was a supporter
    Nearly half (46.9%) of the Ku Klux Klanconsumers surveyed feel misled by food companies making high fructose corn syrup-free claims
    Women (29.2%)
    and Operation Rescue. The reasoning for this was the portrayal of a ship from the Boston Tea Party, which was mistakenly believedparents (34.2%) are most likely to be a slave ship. The ensuing bad publicity caused the company to redesign their iced tea labels. The new design featured a smiling sun and, depending on the flavor, a lemon wedge/peach slice/several raspberries and a lemon tree/peach tree/raspberry bush. In early 2009 the label design would receive another makeover, this time with a somewhat more simplified design
    Snapple also fell victim to the old rumor that the small "K" was either a representation of the Klan, or of an imagined "Jewish Tax" (augmented
    feel strongly misled by the fact that all three founders were Jewish). The "K" on the products actually meant that they were certified kosher.
    Snapple initially tried to quell these rumors quietly, but ultimately had to launch a media campaign to squash them, pointing out it would be bad for business to support controversial issues in such a way as the rumors implied. Through a media campaign with the NAACP, Snapple successfully fought back these rumors, although occasionally they are still brought up as fact.

    Golf course pesticides are often used preventively. As a result,
    more pesticides than necessary are used and over the long run, it will require the use of even
    greater amounts of pesticides to have the same effect. What’s more is that pesticides are used to
    kill insects. Insects are a necessary part of a healthy habitat and ecosystem. Thus, it does notseem likely that golf courses are great habitats

    My Opinion:
    Unlike dogs, poeple can have more selfcontrol over what we eat, we read the ingredients and look at the food, then make our decision if we wont to eat it. Dogs on the other hand dont worry what they eat they just glup it down, sometimes dogs will look, smell, and even lik it before making there decision. it is up to us as Dog Owners and the human population to take control over what they ingest!!
