I started this article because:
- Palm oil is notorious for green-washing
- It is controversial
- It helps contribute to global warming
- It is marketed as a dietary supplement, like coconut oil.
- It had upvotes on the to-do list.
I understand that the article does not currently list how it is more efficient than soybeans, which makes the article not FAIR AND BALANCED. I also started on the Dr. Oz claim, but there is to much info for me to include there.
There is a video in the green washing article that talks about palm oil. I also read a claim that the RSPO certified sustainable palm oil still causes deforestation, but I did not include this in the article because I have not read into it. But here is a counterclaim:http://www.worldwatch.org/node/6082.
There should also be a section on human rights abuses, but I have not started it yer.
