As processed food displaces nutritious food, more people gain weight and get sick 22.5.2019 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Ed Finn The rate of obesity in Canada has risen to epidemic proportions, with one in eight of us now clinically obese and nearly half of us weighing more than we should.

While 2014 was officially the year of family farming, the UN states that, by creating a decade dedicated to family farming , it aims to draw attention to the fact that the people who produce more than 80 per cent of the planet's food paradoxically are often the most vulnerable to hunger.  My hope is that the UN decade will expose and emphasize the real causes of hunger on this planet -- how the creation of hunger is directly linked to environmental degradation and land grabbing; the loss of family farms and farmland to speculation and concentration, an ...
