Controlling What We Eat: 21st Century Harvests of Shame
The health of the world’s nations is profoundly affected by the form and availability of food. Public awareness of the relationship between diets, industrial farming and personal health has reached unprecedented levels. While fear, anger and distrust increasingly shape middle class suburban household food purchase patterns larger numbers of urban and rural poor have great difficulty in reaching minimum dietary levels. This session examines who control’s what we eat and strategies to restore confidence in global food production and distribution
