Historical Boycotts of The Century That Shook The World

Imagine this: You're craving a Big Mac, but your order comes with a side of political/religious controversy. In 2023, McDonald's faced a global firestorm after its Israeli franchise offered free meals to Israeli soldiers during this period of intense conflict . This sparked worldwide outrage, leading to boycott calls that rattled the world's biggest burger chain. This incident serves as a stark reminder of the power consumers hold.

Wait a minute,  immuno -what again? That is one long and mouthful word. It's Immunochromatography . A technique used to detect the presence of specific substances in a sample. It works by using antibodies that bind to the substance of interest and a color-changing reaction to indicate the presence or absence of the substance . In the case of detecting pork in minced meat, specific antibodies that bind to pork proteins are used. The minced meat sample is placed on a strip with the antibodies embedded in it.
