“The [bonnethead shark] successfully digested the seagrass with enzymes that broke down components of the plants, such as starch and cellulose. Lacking the kind of teeth best suited for mastication, the fish may rely on strong stomach acids to weaken the plants’ cells so the enzymes can have their digestive effects. In all, more than half of the organic material locked up in the seagrass was digested by the sharks, putting them on a par with young green sea turtles.” https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2018/sep/05/bonnethead-omnivorous-shark-species-identified
Even sharks are adopting a reduced meat diet.

“The EU’s limits on the amount of chemical residue found in food products is clearly a source of aggravation to Indian businesses, who describe complications complying with rules on a range of exports:
• Trace amounts of of fungicide in basmati rice
• Growth retarding chemicals in grapes
• Aflatoxins in chillies and spices
• Antibiotics in fish products
• Food hygiene standards at processing plants involved in milk products such as paneer
… The report cites an assortment of other complaints with a range of EU rules, such as lead limits in jewellery.” https://unearthed.greenpeace.org/2018/07/12/brexit-uk-india-trade-review-out-of-reach/
European directives may seem to be lagging in the drive toward renewable energy generation, but at least they have banned jewel-fuelled vehicles.
“Founded in 1991 as a pioneering organic brand, Green & Black’s is famous for its Classic bars, which have ‘organic’ displayed prominently on wrappers under the company’s logo. But the new Velvet Edition dark chocolate bars going on sale in UK supermarkets this month makes no claim to be organic.
The Fairtrade logo has also been ditched as the cocoa beans for the range have been sourced via a certification scheme called Cocoa Life, set up by [US food giant and owner] Mondelēz.” https://www.theguardian.com/business/2017/aug/03/green-blacks-new-uk-chocolate-bar-not-organic-fairtrade
Brown & Grey’s is so much less appetising.
