Brazil's corn oil comes at a steep price, just the labor alone would be considered slavery.

They put up with it, why, I can only guess there exists little in the way of options.
These folks are doing what must be done.

Would you go out and mow down fields of sooty, stenchy corn with a machete?
Because to use machines in the production isn't efficient, it's all done via manual labor.
Oh sure, they burn it first to make it easier.
Which in turn presents a huge ecological weight.

And I could be wrong but I don't think it's good for longevity.
