Did you ever try to talk to your green grocer or retailer in your supermarket about what you purchase?

Going shopping is more or less a crucial part in our daily life.

Whether we delegate it to others - our maid / cook - or do it ourselves, we should have some clue about the things landing on our table, and later in our stomach (aka digestive and metabolic system).

At times we stand there at the fruit counter in the supermarket, and wonder, how does this Fuji Apple now come here?

What do I eat when I eat that? The apple is most certainly coated with shellac, and it is RECOMMENDED by scientists that consult food preserving and processing industry: http://cat.inist.fr/?aModele=afficheN&cpsidt=14859660

But did you know what shellac really is?... and what it does inside our bodies?

ONE APPLE A DAY BRINGS THE LIVER-SURGERY or KIDNEY-STONES TO ME.

There are alternatives to that. Very good alternatives, which are not heard so easily, but you can find them.

Your common grocer might most probably give up talking to you, because he cannot think and does not want to search for alternatives, saying: if you don't want'm don't buy.

Same with chicken or eggs. The huge egg recall last summer was partially delayed by retailers. Granted, they have tight profits. But accountability and responsible behavior correctly communicated from the retailer can be a good promotion tool, maybe create publicity.

What experience have you made? And what consequences had your talk with the purchase department?
