"It's not quite the notes of blackberry with oak tones that you might find in a cab sav but marine. Scientists recently called on wine chemists to determine why plastic smells like food to seabirds. The chemists found out that when plastic is left in the ocean it gains a hint of the sulphur compound di metal sulfide or dm ask a which is a chemical released by algae and even though it stinky. Dms's has been likened to rotten cabbages. That smell is like a dinner. Bell for some long billed super sniffer seabirds. The study published in science advances examined. Why some seabirds. Mistake plastic for chow. It turns out. Ems is a smell. They associated with the aroma of food. Once they realized they haven't found food at all. It's too late. They've already got a sniffle. And a bellyful of plastic. The study also explains why some species such as petrels albatrosses and other tube noses are more prone to binging on it than others. The study's lead author matthews. Voca wanted in it as a graduate student at. Uc davis explained the researchers angle and a press release. He said animals usually have a reason for the decisions they make if we want to truly understand why animals are eating plastic in the ocean. We have to think about how animals find food to noses had already been shown to follow their noses to food and so the first step for the study wants to learn what plastic smells. Like after it's been in the water. The scientists loaded pellets of three common types of plastic a high density polyethylene low-density polyethylene and polypropylene into mesh bags and tied the bags to a buoy and the ocean at monterey bay and dagga bay off the california coast three weeks later the bags were collected and then the wine experts at the uc davis robert mondavi institute for wine and food science were called in a chemical analyzer showed that the plastics smelled of. Dms the thanks to algae that had coated the plastic the chemical is released animals such as krill. A tube knows. Favourite food eat algae. This works to alert the birds to the presence of a meal of their own. It's a case of having a world-class sniffer. Not being a good thing. The researchers found that the birds that follow their noses via. Dms to food are almost six times more likely to ingest plastic as other birds. Twenty fifteen study estimated. The alarming ninety percent of sea birds eat plastic. Sharp pieces of plastic can injure their internal organs while soft pieces can affect body weight since plastic takes up space in the stomach without giving any nutrition. The health effects of poverty on birds have not been completely studied but more than four point eight million metric tons of plastic waste are dumped into the ocean every year. Some estimates put the amount as high as twelve point seven million metric tons so. This is another good reason to reduce reuse and or recycle your plastics..

"Flows out it all flows out and a lot of it ends up in the ocean eight million metric tons of plastic every year and yeah rips and tears get smaller but unlike organic trash plastic doesn't go away it's being called the great Pacific garbage patch the great Pacific garbage patch it's twice as big as Texas is made up of an estimated one point eight trillion pieces of fashionista get out most of it plastic she might think David Katz is on some kind of mission to clean the ocean but actually his goal is to create a circular system a system that stops the plastic from reaching the ocean in the first place David explains this idea from the Ted stage if you were to walk into a kitchen think over flowing water spilling all over the floor soaking into the walls you had to think fast you're gonna panic you can pocket a month or a plunger what do you do first why don't we turn off the tap it would be pointless to mop or plunge or scoop up the water if we don't turn off the top first what are we doing the same for the ocean even if the ocean cleanup project beach plastic recycling programs or any well meaning ocean plastic company was a hundred percent successful would still be too little too late we're trending to produce over three hundred million tons of plastic this year reportedly eighty percent of ocean plastic is coming from those countries that have extreme poverty and that is exactly why I created the plastic.

"There's so much going on right right now we've got Krakow guard on the phone with us live to just kind of touch base and get a little bit of a a more accurate read a little bit more timely read the you know spend a little time on certain things that are important to our ranchers and and farmers and Greg welcome thank you for being being with us how do I get out of the pleasure to be here today so that's how I I know that I'm I'm reading about I'm hearing about your pain and what is happening with Japan and us looks like Japan is going to be a little bit more we're we're gonna be good for farmers will get and some corn some story being poor please going to Japan looks like about seven point four billion over over the course of time that's been settled on we've got other trade issues to work out there looks like China out of sheer necessity both from a political perspective are the I I believe a lot of us take some focused off via Hong Kong but at the same time are they the swine flu African swine flu is taking its toll on China isn't it here is that bully decimating they're they're quiet heard over their dad the report out my role bank thing that they believe that by the end of the year of the turning you wondered is gonna be up forty five percent of what was a year ago wow I am per country that love for god did the number log in log there absolutely astounding under local report by the Chinese government they're gonna have a ten million metric pun port deficit this year I need to look at that and there was only eight million metric tons of pork did that in the export market worldwide the demand that they could they could be out there for a moment when you look at the amount of work normal trade their core market don't match up it should be a a potentially very friendly storage report so do what to do do we export a lot of feed for pork to China well now that your other part of the equation of course is that yeah I got third of all the point being that we grow historically have gone to China and and I'm really been the old there again that out why heard uniformed white mean mailed a solo a large portion of a Barbie and have ended up there and and been run to go talk could you look at the situation with China right now in the in the trade they were helping I think even if that is that old the girl that got a that clearly the training command Merial them because the odds are no longer there that to run those through like like they were at the time that they could get started so I was reading earlier in the first hour of the program I was just going through some very satellites talking about white the department of agriculture's put out in the numbers that came out of the commerce department as to what were what we've already given of the twenty eight billion dollars in aid to farmers and I'm wondering I in I'm not I'm not just trying to put you know lipstick on this pig pardon the pun but you know is it almost a good thing that we have kind of held our ground when so much of this because the farmers that I'm talking to is I travel back out and the ranchers are saying you know we know that in the long run this is going to be good for us but are we finding are they finding all markets that not not in not that they didn't exist but they didn't spend a lot of time trying to get to a because of this the trade issues well I don't think there's band in honor of its opening new markets are just gonna re shuffling the deck obviously when you look at me in exports in particular the United States still in Argentina are there three big players and you got a finite number of being out there and and so they need to find a home I think we've seen probably more Barbie and go through Europe then maybe it would have been the past still in Argentina take into a bigger share of the Chinese business we've traditionally gotten maybe but a little rearranging up were being slowed to up from what we've seen historically in the past but it it perhaps that your point is go out and develop a deeper relationship with partners that we're probably secondary providers so in the long run I mean it it could help us some some of the ag business diversify little bit from as far as where the exports are going and I mean I I think if there's one thing and we're probably already know but any time you're on one customer for a third of your business there that can be an uncomfortable situation and there are certain played out with any situation so it it the diversified I get the place we go with Manson that probably a good thing so what about corn and wheat not gonna be a really interesting story I'll start with that we still got a drought in there you're going on in in Australia of the the earlier this week at least have been very supportive departed since you look at our bring await the Monday work showed ninety percent of that crop harvested now in the United States restored mood big bit ninety nine basically done there we go in Montana at don't let them talk to go with the older yesterday of the recording scored and Montana we're still trying to harvest that we either get hit with some pretty bad weather and it may make it nearly impossible to get that we are listed they've got you think you're going on in the Canadian I'll bring we perspective I think job when they come on November they're going to they're re surveying and we're gonna get numbers but I would expect that all probably that's going to be a friendly for for spring wheat and probably the better right you guys look great to deal we continue have their other problems around the world but I think you can make a case for a maybe it'll be a pure coming forward in in we I'm corny with really interesting at the other day on our rally we went out in the field a gap in the the technical traders have been wanting to do that then we ran into them going pressures that accomplished I think of the corn pictures going to really depend somewhat on how this part was turned out now we're seeing that there's a chance of across from some quarters within there will be a fraud but before October eleventh in Minnesota I well we've got a clean record as well equated maturing property we have that could have an impact on on the crop well but I think there were gonna probably have to really kind of the way up from a year old active I in a green start out with progressive numbers but I kind of look for the national average yield to shrink it as we get into our deal with out there thank you all definitely I'm I'm a little friendlier onion corn wheat and beans frankly more court than than the levels were trading at today so does that mean in our or almost run out of time here Gregor does that mean that that next spring we're probably going to see last beans being planted a lot more corn and maybe some weight that would be my buyers right now I think you're the winner we know of course I'm going to end it now and and I would expect they could be out I would expect court acres to be up next year too and probably probably little you're being installed we had a lot of time before the wedding to think your mate right I think you're absolutely correct with that my advice is that done going to shake out yeah Craig we sure appreciate you and you know I know that our listeners appreciate you if they don't hear it live every day they're going back and going to the website listening to it and really have become dependent upon the work that.

I'll bring we perspective I think job when they come out November they're going to they're re surveying and we're gonna get complex numbers but I would expect that all probably that's going to be a friendly for. for spring wheat and. probably it'd be a rising tide look great deal you know we continued up the other problems around the world but I think you can make a case for a big rally behavior coming forward in in we I'm corny with really interesting at the other day on our rally we went out in the field a gap in in that the technical traders have been wanting to do that then we ran into them going pressures that properly I think of the corn pictures going to really depend somewhat on how this part was turned out not work during the day is the chance of a fraud from some quarters Justin there will be a fraud but before October eleventh in Minnesota I what what got me in the cold as well equated maturing property we have that could have an impact on our end a crop well but I think there were gonna probably have to really kind of the point we had up from a year old active I in it. the card out what progressive numbers but I kind of look for the national average yield to shrink it is we get and are you what's out there thank you all definitely I'm I'm a little friendlier I'm I'm corn wheat and beans frankly more records than than the levels were trading at today so does that mean in our or almost run out of time here Gregor does that mean that that next spring we're probably going to see last beans being planted a lot more corn and maybe some weight. that would be my buyer right now I think you're the winner we of course I'm going to end it now and and I would expect they could be out I would expect court acres up next year too and probably probably little you're being told we had a lot of time before the wedding to think your mate right I think you're absolutely correct but that my biases that does going to shake out yeah.

If I had some some heat on the on the chest. The other thing we did have one of our divers take it under a wetsuit.

But once we got down pretty deep to sixty seventy feet in the water temperature dropped he really didn't get the benefit of of the heat. Like he thought he would.

So if you're interested, you can read that article on ocean conservancy website blog. With plastic. It's not just what we see. But also what we don't see turns out plastic absorbs pollutants from the surrounding water and then transports, those pollutants great distances with the ocean currents. Additionally, there are chemicals that are added to a lot of plastics chemicals, like colorants or flame retardants, and those additives can also Leach out of the plastic and caused yet another problem. So they conducted this study, and they looked at beach cleanups. And looked at the items that were most commonly found on beach cleanups. In those items were beverage, bottles, bottlecaps, styrofoam containers, cutlery grocery bags straws in food wrappers. So they use that data test mate that there was probably about eighty seven thousand metric tons of those items entering the ocean every year and of those eighty seven thousand metric tonnes what they carry with them are about one hundred ninety metric tons of different chemical additives. So a big big problem. But but then news is even worse because those items only account for about one percent of the estimated eight million metric tons of plastic that enter the ocean each year. So we can see a big problem with plastic pollution and chemical pollution. You can. Read a lot more about these findings on your work on on the blog out on ocean conservancy so anything we can do no matter. How simple it is to avoid putting these type of items in single use plastic items in detention will help be mindful if you can avoid it, please. Void it like for me. I when I go to convenience store now instead of buying plastic bottle. So I'll look for a can I'll look for glass bottle.

"Hi, everyone. Just a quick note about today show. It is a live show and the meeting for the American Association for the advancement of science is loud and proud. So please don't mind. The crowd noise. We promise our guest this week are worth it. We've snagged three amazing experts to talk about micro-plastics rafting barnacles and bird poop because science with people. There's always room for bird coop. Okay. So we're about to get started. And the way this works for all the people who are enjoying science. When people the first time signs of people is an interview only podcast. And so I'm going to give an introduction. And then I'm going to start asking these fabulous scientists questions about classics, and it's going to be depressing. Amazing, and I brought this plastic coffee, and I feel bad or any? I'm just gonna don't don't look. Okay. So welcome to our science who the people live show. Thank you. I'm bethany. Berkshire science writer at science news and society for science and the public today. I am delighted to be here on the podcasting stage at the American Association for the events of science. And we've got the invitation to record a live show here. I just started digging through the program, and it's it's so wonderful to be here. It's like an embarrassment of riches in terms of content. But a couple of the sessions really stood out to me and all of those were on plastics. We are surrounded by plastics right now, they're plastics in my coffee there plastics in our smartphones. They're plastics in the chairs you are sitting on the close. We are wearing it. Plastic wrapped the food you probably ate for lunch. If you ate lunch, please eat lunch, and that classic eventually ends up in the environment. And as scientists have found a truly shocking about of it ends up in the ocean. When a lot of us think of ocean, plastics, we might think of like whole plastic bottles and tennis rackets, and I don't know boats. Big chunks, but a lot of the plastic in the ocean is actually way smaller than that. These plastics are micro-plastics which are smaller than five millimeters in size. That's about how. The size of a LEGO give or take I should've brought my goes, but small plastics can have big effects. So today, we're going to talk about plastics in the water where they're going. How much there is how we track it. What on earth we need to do about it? And I'll just go ahead and tell you guys right now that they found plastic in the beer, so we'll start there. To to cover this incredibly depressing topic. I'm here with Jennifer, Jennifer, Provan, sure, Chelsea Rochman, and Christina Simpkin. Jennifer provider is unit head of the wildlife health group at the Canadian Wildlife Service Chelsea Rochman is an aquatic ecologist at the university of Toronto and Christina. Some cannon is a marine ecologist at the Smithsonian environmental research center. Thank you so much for being here. Even though I know here's another session on plastics right now when I'm sorry. Thank you for having us. So I wanted to start a little bit with the scale of the problem. Chelsea do. We know how much plastic is in the ocean by weight or volume or tanker trucks Wales. So measure, we don't know how much plastic is in the ocean. In terms of in general, we have some estimates of how much is floating on the surface of the ocean. And we have estimates of how much enters the ocean every year. So the number that we're often given is that we estimate and this comes from Jamba. Wchs work that eight million metric tons of plastic enters the ocean each year. And so the elephants are the blue whales is that if we lined people up along all the coastlines around the world shoulder to shoulder, and they all had five plastic bags, and they threw them all in at the same time. That's how much enters every year..

They've built out there ethanol industry like they say they want to build out over the next couple of years. They will need our corn. And that's very exciting. The other thing is exciting. Is there definitely are fighting the smog issue. They've talked about buying and now we know the economic industries really struggling right now the margins are in the earned the red. That would help a lot. If we could open up that Mark and get them by an ethanol again there that just we've got to feed. Market, and that should be bullish a coroner's well back at the Chinese are talking about growing more of their own. They ever some statement from the Chinese about that this week that they wanted to not only increase the amount of hectares devoted to soybeans. But to try to find a way to improve the oil and the protein content of those beans do so that that tends to to lend a little bit of Barry snus, I guess long-term to Baynes if indeed they follow through with that. But that would be hector's that they wouldn't be trying to grow corn on what exactly they're gonna essentially what's going to happen is they're gonna look they're gonna try to diversify away from the corner a little bit get a little bit more beans, but the fact of the matter is with amount of hogs, they produce. I mean, they produced seven hundred fifty million hog hogs a year. Now, it's down a little bit this year due to the African swine flu by as a whole. They are a massive producer hawks. You take them out of the United States, the next forty nine countries combined including us, and that's amount of hogs they produce in China to put it in perspective. So. They need a lot of protein feed them to feed those hogs. They will bump up their demand their domestic production a little bit. But in the big scheme. They've still got a big importer of beans from boss and South America. So what are you telling your Farber customers, given the fact that there is that potential out there for some very friendly news, relative to corden all right now what we're on our customers right now is now now's the time to be prepared because it's gonna be emotional. And it's probably going to be short lived. That's the history of the markets nowadays. I mean like you said it's I've been doing this for twenty four years, and it seems like when we get news. It happens instantaneously the market prices within minutes. So we're telling customers be compared margins are tight this year. There's no doubt about it. Maximum sure, you've talked a lot of producers across the country that we know times are a little bit tight. We get this opportunity to rally corn, which I think there's a decent shot. We've got that down the line. We want producers to think, hey, how do I market a screen hotter? Protect prophets. How do I make sure I making sound business decisions going into.

It's ne- Brian split Bill Biedermann, and Matt Bennett you've been in this business awhile yourself, haven't you this'll be my twenty four year. And it's business. Let's talk about that at times like you've never seen before. I guess for most of us who have followed the market world for quite some time. There's never been anything quite like this. I would agree with that hundred percent. I mean, we are definitely some interesting times with the politics that trade tariffs going on. It's been it's been a tough year for a lot of producers. It's been a tough year for just industries as a whole I think right now because these trade tariffs have put everybody into a little bit of a pause mode and a lot of people questioning what's going to happen next max, even if there's good news or what is immediately perceived as good news. It's going to be tough to sustain much of a rally on the back of that, isn't it? Well, I I actually think there's a little bit too dynamics. I think the bean market's gonna be very tough to struggle plain and simple, we've with us missing this business last year. It's lost business in my opinion on we did ship some grain to Argentina. But our innings acts of balloon to little over nine hundred million nine hundred million bushels, even planning three or four million less acres of beans were still going to have an abundant supply of beans. The a good crop could push it over a billion bushel carry out Sabine going to struggle rallies and beans, a probably gonna need to be taken aggressively, salt plain and simple on the other hand. The corn is a little bit a little bit different situation. The projected corn carry out right now is about Bill. Seven hundred thirty five million. That's actually six hundred million less than what it was a year ago at this time. So you look at where we're at right now that kind of carrying if we only two and a half to three million workers the corn, which is kind of what the USDA's thinking, which is what the trades thinking max that we have just a trend yield with two to three million workers the corn. We're barely going to consume produce what we consume urine, you're out. So there's very very little margin for air. So if you have to wet of a spring to call of a spring, I think you see people trying to put some weather opinion the market yet. A wild card is China when we talk about China's trade talks, China has always bought US beans when they wouldn't have this tariff battle. They quit buying our beans when they come back in we solve this trade tariffs, hopefully, very soon. They're just gonna come back into the market that we were expecting just a year ago corn on the other hand they haven't bought a lot of corn for us for years now and they've been blocking distillers grains for years now. So they're talking by three five eight million metric tons of corn. Well, they buy three to finally metric tons of corn. You're talking dropping to carry out one hundred two hundred. Bushels so instantaneously the moment that China buys corn are care out will go from one seven three five to possibly once one five three five of not lower and that could be a game changer, especially with a wet spring. The president even tweeted about it. The other day did not referee referencing the fact that China could I forget how the president praised it.

We're going to continue to move kind of be pithy as you can short to the point. We there question. I'll try to do the same with the answer or move on. So the index is an index called the Big Mac index. You probably haven't heard of it other than I've talked about it a couple of times, it is an index of our currency of the US dollar and right now looking like the dollar is about a strong as it's ever been. It's been in the last thirty years for sure stronger than it's been in the last thirty years, the Big Mac index one of the things that this organization does they they do it. It's kinda tongue-in-cheek. But it's just one of the things they do. It's a legitimate. Legitimate thing. But they go around the world and they buy a Big Mac with. The currency in that country, and then they buy with a US dollar. They run some analytics on it. And they see. Come out with a valuation of purchasing power for that dollar for the US dollars compared to the currencies owned companies currency and right now, the US dollar. Is the strongest it's been in thirty years. The strongest it's been in thirty years, not only by this measure of purchasing power of currency, but other measures as well. Why do I bring this up is that important more? You know, I love a strong dollar. I talk about it all the time. And it is important to know that we are. We are one of the strongest currencies if not the strongest right now in the world, we haven't held that position. Some time. I get emails every day about the crashing currency in the fall of the currency listening to too many gold sales meeting and gold bloggers and all those guys. Thanks. The currency purchasing power is better than it's ever been. An isn't an amazing that when the economy is bad and the dollar is getting weaker all the ads get run by the goal bureau. Well, you know, the purchasing power of the dollar. Isn't it amazing how they never talk about the purchasing power of the dollar when it is up to our thirty year high. We never hear about that. As a matter of fact, we only hear the dollar as compared to the dollar from back to nine hundred twenty eight or something we don't we don't see does anybody believe that the dollar has an appreciated in value. I mean, it is amazing. So you have not gotten a pay raise since one thousand nine twenty eight. So is it because you have just become more valuable or is the job paying you more of those appreciated dollars. Of course, it's paying you more. But they don't talk like that. So the US dollar one of the strongest and I thought about if it wasn't rapid fire Friday when I read this. I thought you know, I need to talk about currency. I need to talk about what is going on in the world. And all this talk about reserve currency being lost. I really need to address that in great detail. And maybe I'll do that on Monday or Tuesday. But it is amazing to me. That we don't spend enough time on that. It is very very important and right now. There is money from around the world flocking to US treasuries. I love it. When the liberal politician say, we're printing more money, so we can pay our bills were print more money better yet were selling that money because everybody wants. Mine right now.

"Hey, brain stuff on Lauren Boko bomb, and you might not know what palm oil is. But chances are without realizing it you consume it in some form or many different ones every day. It's an ingredient in about half of all packaged products sold at the supermarket from instant noodles in ice cream to pizza and packaged bread. And it's also found in lipstick, soap, shampoo and detergent in other countries. It's heavily used as a bio fuel for cars and trucks. Indeed, the world consumed seventy five point eight million tonnes that's about sixty eight point eight million metric tonnes of palm oil in two thousand seventeen alone which amounted to more than a third of all of the vegetable oils used on the planet palm oils ubiquitous presence, and the world's growing consumption of it has a lot of environmental activists deeply worried the union of concerned. Scientists for example, warns that cultivation of the oil palm tree which produces the fruit from which palm oil is extracted is driving the cutting down and burning of tropical rainforests in southeast Asia, which is increasing health risk. From pollution and pumping planet warming carbon dioxide into the atmosphere as well as driving animals such as Rambutan Tigers, rhinoceros and elephants from their habitats. So what is palm oil anyway. And how did it get to be? So ubiquitous in modern civilization. It wasn't always that way. Palm oil is produced from the fruit of the oil palm tree, which is native west Africa for centuries. It's been part of the traditional diet in that region. As a source of fat and other nutrients and is utilized as a cooking oil and an ingredient in folk medicines while the palm oil that's processed for use. In products is tasteless palm oil grown in the traditional fashion in west Africa, actually has an intense taste. It's an ingredient in soups and other dishes, farmers planted. It in forests as both part of agriculture and forestry, but the oil pump didn't stay in Africa Europeans. Brought the oil palm to southeast Asia in the eighteen hundreds and tried growing it on plantations, but it didn't start catching on in a big way until the mid nineteen sixties one big boost her was the World Bank, which spent nearly one billion. Dollars to fund oil palm cultivation in an effort to promote economic development and lift people in rural areas out of poverty about half of that money went to fund series of projects in Indonesia, which became the world's biggest producer between the nineteen sixties and the two thousands the amount of land devoted to growing oil palm cultivation increased eightfold and spread to tropical areas across the globe. We spoke with Jeff connett director of friends of the earth's international forced program, which works to protect the rights of forest dependent peoples by addressing the economic issues driving for his destruction key explained the plant was improved in hybridize and varieties were developed that grew very well in large monoculture plantations palm oil became a lucrative crop to grow. I it's officiant in terms of crop yield per acre of land. Additionally, new uses were developed cut. It said it's good for placing margarine in that it's got a high melting point. And when it's refined. It has no flavor that makes it good for baking in the mid two thousand after the US food and Drug administration started requiring the listing. Of trans fats on nutrition labels, because they were linked heart disease, processed food manufacturers began looking to palm oil as a trans fat free alternative, then around the same time, the US and other western nations drafted environmental laws encouraging these vegetable oils such as palm oil is fuel as a way to reduce carbon dioxide output 'em, slow global warming. But that well intentioned move backfired because the clearing and burning of forests for palm oil cultivation, actually led to the release of massive amounts of carbon that had been stored in the Pete on forest floors, cut explained oil palm trees, often grow best in places where rainforests were it's definitely factor in deforestation. Oil palm cultivation brought other problems as well. Monoculture cultivation is needed to produce a prophet and that wears out the soil after twenty five or thirty years, Colin said leaving land unusable without intense and expensive effort and while the palm oil industry provides employment for millions of people. It's also been plagued by accusations of human rights abuses. Including these of child workers, December twenty eighteen article in Sierra magazine, for example, describes Guatemalans working sixteen hour days on oil palm plantations and suggests that use of oil palm cultivation contributes to food scarcity because it's taking up land where local farmers otherwise could be growing corn beans rice and other substance crops in response to the growing criticism of palm oil various stakeholders agricultural producers manufacturers who use palm oil and products, banks, and investors, and some environmental organizations among others has started a movement to promote sustainable palm oil the roundtable on sustainable palm oil founded in two thousand four has established a set of principles which includes avoiding use of forests that provide habitat to endangered species reduction in the use of pesticides and burning to clear land fair treatment of workers, according to local and international labor standards and consulting with local communities before new plantations are developed, according to the are SPO's website nineteen percent of global palm oil production is now certified as sustain. Cannibal? But in addition to promoting sustainability, it's crucial to stop the growth of oil palm cultivation and reduce the amount of land devoted to it. Consumers can help drive such change con- it said because most palm oil in the US is found in junk, food, and cosmetics. The best way to avoid it is to not eat junk
