In today's breaking news, the bowls used by a popular fast-food chain have been linked cancer!
Of course, fast food has been long known to be problematic if you follow health and wellness news.

In other health news, drug giant Novartis has been accused of manipulating data while seeking approval for a $2.1 million treatment.

Finally, in another story of bad-faith corporate actions, Kellogg, maker of sugary, starchy cereals, has been accused of paying off so-called "third-party" experts to promote its products.
Kellogg paid council experts an average of $13,000 per year, according to emails and contracts obtained by the Associated Press. The payment was for expert to engage in “nutrition influencer outreach” and refrain from offering their services to products that were “competitive or negative to cereal.”
