Companies have not always been good about making sure what they offer is healthy but many are improving this. It’s bad for business to disregard health since people are becoming more conscious of it. There is too much info out there now for companies to get away with lying or hiding the health info about their products. When they improve we applaud it and are more likely to give them our business. We want to be healthy now.
