I'm Spiritual, Dammit

Eating bananas feeds VIOLENCE!

I always thought that eating bananas was good for me.  I feed them to my son all the time.  They are supposed to be filled with nutrients- low in calories.. the "perfect" food.  As a "spiritual" mom, I will never be able to buy another banana now that I know how many people die to bring them to my Chicago grocery store. 
My friend Jose Rios just came back from shooting a documentary in Central America about the injustices faced by banana growers and workers.  It was shocking- but the word needs to get out.  Watch this- pass it on... and visit the movie website to learn more about what Dole and Chiquita are doing to these communities.
