Your chocolate may be sweet but how it arrives at the store may not be.  Learn about the child labor & sex trafficking behind chocolate! In this episode of NPE Radio & Occult Health News, Gregory discusses the  the sinister practices behind the harvesting of chocolate.  What most people don’t know is that 70% of the world’s chocolate is harvested by child laborers, most often kidnapped or coerced.  He also details the evidences of sex trafficking among the workers.  He finishes the podcast with what can be done to buy more ethically-conscious chocolate.

In this episode of NPE Radio & Occult Health News, Gregory talks about the “dark” side behind chocolate, its harvesting, preparation, and marketing. We talk about how the big chocolate companies in Europe & America turn a blind eye to the horrible practices occurring in West Africa. Lastly, we talk about the sham behind the Fair Trade certifications.
