10 Dark Secrets Brands Don’t Want You to
Know 10. DuPont In 1951 DuPont, an industrial chemical company,
purchased a little known compound called Perfluorooctanoic [per-floro-okta-no-wick] Acid, or PFOA for
short. At this point, DuPont was producing around
900 tons of Teflon, the non-stick coating, every year. Their new acquisition of PFOA helped improve
the manufacturing process, which meant more Teflon and more money. The only problem is that PFOA is a horribly
toxic chemical that causes cancer in animals and does not break down in the environment. DuPont agreed to phase it out by 2015, when
asked by the Environmental Protection Agency. This came on the back of the EPA fining DuPont
$16.5 million for concealing information about health effects. One citation came in 1981 when DuPont found
that pregnant members of staff were having babies with birth defects, such as facial
deformities. DuPont also realized in 1991 that it had contaminated
the water supply of 12,000 people. In 2015 DuPont lost a case to woman who claimed
they had caused her kidney cancer. PFOA is now detectable in 98% of the US population
and has been found everywhere, from household dust to popcorn. There are currently 3,400 cases awaiting court. 9. IBM IBM’s role in the Holocaust and its 12 year
collaboration with Hitler’s Third Reich remained unknown until a 2001 book published
by historian Edwin Black. While we know that everything from Fanta to
Volkswagen was invented in Nazi Germany, IBM – an American company – sank to even darker
depths. The IBM Hollerith machine, which tabulated
punch cards, turned out to be central to the systematic killing of Jews in Europe. The machines tracked census information to
identify the locations of populations across Europe, then – when captured – they were used
to track movements on trains to and from ghettos and concentration camps. The number tattooed onto Auschwitz prisoners
was their IBM punch card identification. The CEO of IBM at the time met with Hitler
and the vast process could not have been maintained without support from the American offices. Two class-action lawsuits were brought against
IBM by Holocaust survivors in the early noughties, but both were dropped due to legal technicalities. 8. Kids Wish Network Labeled America’s Worst Charity by the ‘Center
for Investigative Reporting’, the Kids Wish Network seems to be less about helping and
more about hoarding. Out of the $141 million dollars they had raised,
just $3.5 million went to making children’s dreams come true – less than 2 and a half
percent. So where did this money go? Well $116 million was spent on ‘fundraising
solicitors’, which are run as for-profit corporations. Money also went to the founder and president
– a salary of $130,000 a year and $4.8 million to companies he controlled. They also avoiding telling the IRS about financial
transactions made to associates of the charity. The Kids Wish Network was founded in Florida
in 1997 and originally called the “Fulfill a Wish Foundation”, which sounds an awful
lot like the “Make a Wish Foundation”. They thought so too and didn’t want to be
associated with this venture so sued Fulfill a Wish to make them change their name. 7. Bayer Bayer, the German pharmaceutical giant, has
been behind a number of world changing drugs: aspirin, heroin, antibiotics and birth control. But, as we’ll see, it hasn’t just been
curing diseases; it’s also knowingly caused them. In the 1980s they had developed drugs to help
blood clotting in haemophiliacs. The medicine involved an injection with concentrate
made from donated pools of blood plasma. The catch was that the blood had been taken
prior to HIV testing. Over 8,000 haemophiliacs developed AIDS in
the USA as a result. In response, Bayer developed a safer medicine
in 1984, but continued to knowingly sell the old medicine overseas – making millions – in
order to get rid of their large stock. Over 100 people were infected in Hong Kong
and Taiwan, and the drug was also sold in Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Japan and
Argentina. In 1997 Bayer paid out $660 million in order
to settle cases with over 6,000 people. 6. ExxonMobil People like oil companies even less than Big
Pharma, so it’s no surprise they’re on this list. But just how bad can they get? Well, how about detention, torture and killings? By running a natural gas extraction facility
in Aceh [ah-cheh], Indonesia, ExxonMobil put themselves in the middle of a conflict between
the local Acehnese’ wish for independence and the militaristic government. But of course, ExxonMobil were on the government’s
side. In 1998 they were accused of supplying bulldozers
and machinery to dig mass graves. In order to ‘protect’ themselves from
the local campaigners, ExxonMobil started paying soldiers to work as their private security. What was known as “Exxon’s Army” resulted
in a lawsuit filed by 11 civilians who claim Exxon were paying the Indonesian military
$6 million a year to conduct torture and extrajudicial killings. The case is still in progress. 5. Walmart Did you know that 111 Walmart employees were
killed in a fire in unsafe conditions in 2012? Maybe you knew that Walmart employs underage
people? Or that Walmart pays off officials to keep
all of this secret? Well, it’s all true, with the caveat that
these ‘employees’ actually work in overseas factories where over 50% of Walmart stock
comes from. The factory that burned down was in Bangladesh
and children that provide labor actually make up the majority of international workers. In Thailand it was reported by the Guardian
in 2014 that slaves were forced to work for years under threat of extreme violence. The production of Walmart’s shrimp was at
the center of the debacle, with the investigation describing “large numbers of men bought
and sold like animals and held against their will on fishing boats”. Those who managed to escape the boats told
of 20-hour shifts and execution style killings. Bear that in mind next time you’re making
some gumbo. 4. Coca-Cola It’s no secret that sugary drinks are bad
for you, but what Coca-Cola does keep quiet are the shady practices behind the production
of the world’s favorite soft drink. Investigative journalist Michael Blanding
uncovered the “water wars” raging in India between local communities and Coca-Cola bottling
plants, as well as a contamination of Indian Coke by pesticides. Blanding talks of at least three towns where
water reserves have dried up shortly after Coca-Cola plants have opened – water that
is not only used for drinking, but also for raising food crops. Successful campaigning managed to get a plant
in Kerala closed down in an unprecedented event. Today, Coca-Cola claims to be harvesting rainwater
instead of depleting reserves, but Blanding says droughts make this impractical, so it
amounts to lip service. Coca-Cola’s position in India is strong
and doesn’t look to be changing any time soon. 3. Nestlé A report authored in 1974 by Mike Muller was
called ‘The Baby Killer’ and spoke of the horrors infants were experiencing in the
less economically developed countries of Africa, Asia and Latin America. Babies were dying of malnutrition and diseases
that were entirely avoidable. Why? Their mothers were using infant formula rather
than breast milk, and Nestlé was behind this. The report talked of sales reps who were dressed
up as nurses and sent into maternity wards to give out free baby formula. The International Baby Food Action Network
claimed that the formula interfered with lactating, so when mothers left hospital they could no
longer breastfeed. Nestlé then started charging for the formula,
but mothers couldn’t afford it and so their children went hungry. Furthermore, the formula had to be mixed with
water and served in a feeding bottle, both of which could be easily contaminated and
cause deadly infections. As a result of these deaths, a global movement
boycotting Nestlé took hold and the company’s image has never really recovered. 2. Chiquita Chiquita haven’t always been about a happy
Latina lady balancing a bowl of fruit on her head; before 1984 they were the rather more
stately-sounding United Fruit Company, and you’re about to find out why they may have
wanted a re-brand. For a start, in 1928 the so-called ‘Banana
Massacre’ saw striking United Fruit Company workers being slaughtered by the Colombian
Army, allegedly operating under orders from United Fruit. Up to 3,000 people may have been killed. Then, over a dispute about land in Guatemala,
the UFC asked the CIA to intervene, which they handled with flying colors. By staging a coup, they installed a dictator,
which led to a bloody civil war that began in 1960 and lasted 36 years. In 1974 the UFC chairman Eli Black dealt with
the company’s moral shortcomings by smashing a window on his 44th floor office with his
briefcase and jumping to his death. By the way, they may have changed their name,
but as recently as 2004 they were fined $25 million for funding terrorist organizations
in Colombia. 1. Monsanto Monsanto have been voted Most Evil Corporation
and are often decried because of their use of GMO crops. But to be honest, GMO is just a technology,
and one that could be used for good. Monsanto has done much worse things that supposedly
playing god. The first strike? The manufacture of Agent Orange for use by
the US military in the Vietnam War. The chemical was dropped from planes and designed
to ‘defoliate’, or burn, all crops and vegetation that worked to the benefit of the
opposition. But it burned a lot more than just that, with
millions of Vietnamese people suffering from exposure to the chemical. Strike two? Since then they’ve managed to make seeds
that produce their own pesticides and don’t reproduce, forcing farmers to rebuy crops
year after year from them. The farmers can’t even buy from elsewhere
because Monsanto artificially controls all prices in the seed market. The third and final strike? They managed to get the US government to pass
the ‘Monsanto Protection Act’, which absolves them of any liability for environment or human
damage. Oh by the way, remember Bayer? Well in 2016, they bought Monsanto. Got any dark secrets of your own? Share them in the comments below and maybe
you can start an evil corporation together. Also check out this video here.

  1. If you learned something new from this video – please hit the LIKE button!! P.s. Thanks for watching.. Let's hope the video doesn't get taken down! #MoneyTalks

  2. There were no jews killed in europe, it was just europeans killing europeans. Look at pictures of the people in camps, NONE are circumsized.. that means it wasnt jews that were killed.

  3. I never buy coke made in India – that would be cruel and heartless. Instead, I MAKE SURE all of my coke comes from Columbia and Bolivia.

  4. Add the Southern Learning Poverty Center. They ask for money and hoard the money overseas. If they don't like you, they smear your name. They do little to help blacks.

  5. Anyone who thinks it's Coca Cola's fault that India's ground water reserves are dying up is an idiot. Oh no, 1.3 Billion Indians and Indian farmers, many using antiquated irrigation techniques and systems, have nothing to do with it.

  6. This video makes me want to be communist.. lol, just kidding but I never wanted to watch this video because I was thinking what is that Coca Cola factory. But it must be fake and this video don't help me in my life.. I still enjoy my daily dose of Coca Cola

  7. IBM isn't the only ones on the list that worked with the nazis, Bayer did experiments for the nazis back when they were still called IG Farbin…


  8. Correction: FANTA was NOT invented in Germany. FANTA was a creation of Coca-Cola who wanted, as did a number of other American Companies such as Singer Sewing Machine, to do business with the Nazis while the Nazis were still busying killing people by the truckload. DOW CHEMICAL was the manufacturer of the Xyklon gas used at Auschwitz and other Nazi death camps.

    "Both were dropped for legal technicalities." Now in English: "Someone got paid a shitload of money under the table to drop this case."

    This is Capitalism on display. Greed, arrogance, and people are expendable.

  9. World is run by Finance, in the form of Capitalism perpetuated through colonialism. It's not personal everyone, its just business. We can't stop it, because this Money thing has turned into a Beast of its own. It has piled in the form of a pyramid and we are all in it. The closer to the top one(business, family, cult or individual) is, the more impervious they are to being regulated, while the ones closer to the bottom have less and less, the ones at the very bottom are slaves. Not much has changed in the history of time, brutal kings rule and the many act the slave-fool.

  10. I think the coke story is false. Coke CEO… I have a great idea, lets build a multi million dollar bottling company where we have a very limited water supply.

  11. Watch FOOD INC on Netflix if you want to learn more about Monsanto and what they're really doing to our crops and farmers around the world. It is HORRIBLE

  12. Nice to know this information thank you for showing your video it was great!! 🤔🤔🤓🤓🤓🙄🙄🤔🤔🤔🤓🤓🤓🤓🤓🤓👍

  13. Mni Wiconi, Native American Treaty rights are going to become an important topic as Sovereign Land Holders when it comes to the Evils of the Land by Corporation. In Lakota, that Missouri River was granted to us, our lands gave us everything sustainable as a Nation with all the resources we needed. More cultures and nations need to get back to sustainability and back to the land in the natural way, these corporations act like sovereign countries themselves jumping from place to place all over the world. it's time to take a stance.

  14. I'm confused. If the Nestle product interfered with lactating, does this mean the mothers were also drinking it or does it mean the babies never learned how to get milk from the mother?

  15. Just make multinational corporations pay ridiculous amount of money to national goverments and victims and destroy their reputation then remade the system that every corporation must be socially responsible no matter where it is based to lessen the harm they make in pursuite for profit.

  16. All of these things were actually DONE by government, or enabled by government.

    Governments are the 00-Corporations, licensed to kill.

  17. Like myself, I think many people would have watched this video in full no matter what.
    You should have started with the Coke caption first, instead of drawing people in with another form of click-bait.
    I have always enjoyed the knowledge I recieve from documentories like this, no matter the subject matter.
    I give you a thumbs up for the documentory.
    However, I feel pressed to give you a THUMBS DOWN, for your weak integrity.
    As I can't do both, I'll give a thumbs up for the great documentory.
    I've been aware of most of these sitiuations for decades. There were however, one particular sitiuation I knew very little about. (Bayors involvement with causing an Aids outbreak, though I remember hearing it mentioned in passing back in the early 90s). So I do thankyou for sharing.

  18. I've done some stupid, selfish shit in my life and think about it a lot. None of it was atrocities that ever came close to the shit these companies did and continue to do. This world is evil, the people that run it are evil. It's about time they paid for their crimes, ten fold.

  19. My Husband use to use this all the time he ended up dying from liver Cancer. But he was also exposed to Agent orange died in 2015 . Don’t have your spouse cremated so they can do test to see if roundup was the cause.

  20. Nestle "The horrors that infant's were experiencing in less economically developed countries of Africa, Asia,…what? Those aren't countries. If they just changed "of" to "in", it would sound much better and made a little more sense.

  21. I'd like to see the natives take the board members of these companies and set them loose in the jungle, mountain, desert and then hunt them down. Then they should tickle them to death, which is torture.

  22. Left-wing sources like "Mother Jones" and "Salon" have questionable credibility, making some of these "facts" unreliable.

  23. How could Monsanto get the Government to pass an act? that would keep them from being held liable. first off just asking for such and act. would mean they are all ready guilty these crimes. and would implement the Government. in the involvement of such crimes. that makes sense. the Government is crooked that has been established.

  24. Wow. There are some real scumbags out there. Anyone who knowingly murders people for profit, should be given the death penalty, regardless of how rich and powerful they are… but nothing will happen, because law makers and politicians are paid off. Fuck 'em all.

  25. The background music is a hellish forbearance to deal with, total distraction , like there's not enough noise and nuisances once you step outside your living quarters. I don't get it.? What percent of people have background in their vids? UNREAL

  26. Samsung just recently admitted guilt for not making sure there was safety precautions for their employees when handling toxic substances. 26 dead of Leukimia and hundreds still very sick from leukimia. They threw some pocket change at them . It took over a decade for this lawsuit. The protesters tried to raise awareness by calling a 1000 days of protest and 1000 people held hands around the 4 evil Samsung towers on the 1000th day.

  27. Last year, Bayer agreed to start placing round up ingredients in their mass produced vaccines. This year, Monsanto, and by default, Bayer, are the defendants in a class action lawsuit where in the EPA and the CDC agree that Round Up pesticide causes Non Hodgkins Lymphoma. Monsanto and Bayer have known this for years, btw. They are now deliberately putting cancer causing chemicals in the vaccines that they make mandatory. They put them in our food. Our water. Our medicines. Our soil. Our vaccines. Why? to sell the drugs they create for chemotheraphy and radiation. These companies, and other Big Pharma companie heads, have publicly stated that they are not in the business of generating cures or helping patients, but in the business of inflating the bottom line for their shareholders. WHEN are we going to say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH and put an end to this!?!

  28. A combination of hindsight is 20/20, a Marie-Antoinette type of naïve "let them eat cake" attitude to the historically developing world and general historical ignorance, with a few genuine criminals mixed in, to make the other inclusions worse. Possibly one of the most misleading videos on the entire Internet.

  29. I worked in the 80's for DUPONT R12 REFRIDGERENT DIVISION in California…i guess that's why many of my fellow workers have passed away(Why I'm Still Alive Is GODS WILL!)

  30. The kid scam makes me feel really pissed beach use im a kid and some fucking guy is saying ohh yeah save these kids they are dying give her a wish we will only take like 98% and get rich of some dying kids (edit) and forgot to say I'm sure all my class would agree and most adults and teenagers and worse of all even happens to toddlers

  31. I've worked commercial fishing in the Gulf of Mexico. It's around 20 HR shifts for 8 days with naps in-between drop spots. When you're on the fish you don't go to sleep until they stop getting caught.

  32. Oh I don't shop at Walmart i don't drink Coca-Cola i don't eat Chaquita bananas i don't use nestle products I dont bother with Monsanto. Basically every company is corrupt to an extent. That's why do not donate to popular charities. I don't even donate to goodwill because that guy is a crook

  33. Excellent list, but you forgot one important detail about Monsanto: their seeds have also resulted in the suicides of hundreds of thousands of Indian farmers who were unable to pay their debts to them, and were hence forced to hand over their fields to them. In many cases the farmers would walk out into the middle of their fields, kill themselves by drinking pesticides, to which Monsanto officials would just inform the farmer's wife that her husband was lying dead in the fields, and that she would have to take care of it.

    For more on this have a listen to Vandana Shiva!

  34. This is what gives capitalism a bad name. BUT ITS HUMANITIES BAD MORALS GUYS NOT CAPITALISM!!!!! And what terrible monsters we can be……. Apparently we will poison the planet for a few bucks… Think morons, where you gonna spend that money? We only got ONE planet you DUMB SOB!!!

  35. UN AGENDA = 2030 to kill most of the population off and get it down to 500 million people who will be micro chipped and made slaves of the Elite . Clover seeds sprayed with roundup weed killer – then germinated and when the CLOVER BLOOMED – thousands of acres of Dead Honey Bees ? all Deep State tactics to starve us or kill us off . W W G 1 W G A

  36. all companies in the world are really owned by about 200 total people anyways, so it doesn't matter. they're killing 100% of us (one way or another) with slow poisoning, while they enjoy the privilege of electronically-enhanced bodies. aka immortality. oh, and they no longer live on this doomed planet. #wakeup #andthengobacktosleepcuztheresnothingyoucandoaboutit #BernardArnault

  37. Biology is on your side. After several generations your body will be unaffected by this toxic crap. My grandparents drank and smoked heavily and lived until their late 80's. They also were exposed to all sorts of toxic crap in the industrial factories they worked in. Your gene's will adapt. My grandpa at the age of 85 was playing golf a few times a week while drinking and smoking since the age of 15 in good health. So in a way, you need this toxic crap. I got a blood transfusion in the 80's while I was a kid and got exposed to hepatitis. At the time many people were getting sick from it and even dying. My body cleared it and today I have no trace of hepatitis exposure. I really love my old European gene's. We're straight up terminators.
