Chemicals, Insects & Animal Parts="Food"

This is a crazy slideshow/article about food additives and factory farming practices. Who knew grapefruit juice wasn't always vegetarian?

Money Quote:
Bugs go into many things that you pop into your mouth -- from Hershey's candies to Tropicana grapefruit juice to Yoplait strawberry yogurt. They all use red coloring derived from crushed bugs, specifically female cochineal beetles and their eggs.
