The Average Chocolate Bar Contains Eight Insect Bits
We've heard before how the FDA allows companies to sell food containing trace pieces of INSECTS. But we never knew how badly the insects had invaded CHOCOLATE.
--According to ABC News, the average chocolate bar contains EIGHT INSECT PIECES.
--And it gets worse: They say that people who are allergic to chocolate generally aren't reacting to the cocoa . . . they're reacting to the GROUND-UP COCKROACH and other insects that have invaded their chocolate.
--The problem is . . . there's really nothing you can do about it. Dr. Morton Teich is an allergist who consults with the FDA . . . he says, quote, "to avoid [insects in your food], you probably would have to stop eating completely."
According to the Annual Airline Quality Ratings . . . They're All Awful
he annual Airline Quality Ratings were just released, and once again they proved one thing: All the airlines in this country are awful . . . but some are slightly less awful than others.
--The rankings are based on four factors: On-time performance, bumped passengers, mishandled baggage, and customer complaints.
--None of the airlines had particularly spectacular results . . . all of them had issues in all four categories. But of the 15 airlines in the study, Air Tran scored the best.
--Hawaiian came in second, JetBlue was third, Frontier was fourth, and Alaska was fifth.
--On the other end, American Eagle scored the worst . . . and no other airline was even close. Mesa was second-worst, Atlantic Southeast was third-worst, United was fourth-worst, and their new partner Continental was fifth-worst.
