Badeal in Al-Akhbar. My editorial "The customer is king" on how the Lebanese government does not provide the citizen or the farworkers any form of legal protection against the overuse of pesticides, while exports are subjected to strict quality control. The Lebanese state cares about its customers, as long as they live outside Lebanon. Iman Nuwayhid's article on the health hazards faced by workers, and the absence of appropriate policies. Rana Hayek on the ills of fast food, and on the abuse of vitamins. Soy is the plant of the week.
