While I have no wish to put anyone off their breakfast or whatever, I think this is worth a read.

The spread of the avocado is a story of greed, ambition, corruption, water shortages, cartel battles and, in a number of towns and villages, a fierce fightback

Not the first time I've read of the consequences of the especially N. American obsession with the avocado in the last few years, sadly. It's just a reminder of what can happen under the toxic rules of capitalism. Even if with the best of intentions and originally inadvertently.

Indeed, me neither. I gave up eating avocados about 8 years ago. Not that they were ever a favourite, lthough I did buy one yesterday because I needed to take a photograph for some work I'm doing for a client. I did feel uncomfortable yesterday then read this this morning!
