Now, what about that salad?
If it is a typical commercial salad, it is just a bit of lettuce, grown with water and likely some pesticides and herbicides and fertilizers. It may have been picked by poorly paid labourers, who were in turn exposed to those harmful chemicals. Then that lettuce was packaged in plastic, and shipped to market, very quickly, yet with spoilage along the way. Especially if the refrigeration breaks down, or if there is some kind of delay.
