should change biofuel policy to avoid food crisis: U.N. should change biofuel policy to avoid food crisis: U.N. August 13, 2012. ROME Reuters - The U.N.'s food agency stepped up the pressure on the United States on Friday to change its biofuel policies because of the danger of a world food crisis, arguing the importance of growing crops for food over their use for fuel. Global alarm over the potential for a food crisis of the kind seen in 2007/08 has escalated as drought in the U.S. Midwest has sent grain prices to record highs, fuelling a 6 percent surge in the UN Food and Agriculture Organization's July food price index. federal mandates, leaving even less for food and feed markets," he wrote in an editorial. fuel companies are required to ensure that 9 percent of their gasoline pools are made up of ethanol this year, which means converting some 40 percent of the corn crop into the biofuel.

The global rise in food prices is not only a consequence of using food crops to produce biofuels, but of the free trade policies promoted by international financial institutions.

Food Aid Emergency. The food price crisis has made demand more acute and supplies even scarcer, but it hasn’t really changed the underlying problems with food aid as a response to hunger. Even the World Bank’s World Development Report 2008 highlighted the neglect of agriculture in the last 30 years of development spending and the myriad problems this neglect had created. Food aid donations have fallen sharply while the number of people facing acute need in emergencies of different kinds has increased. For instance, the United States still sells food aid to governments, who then sell or distribute the food in local markets. Another practice unique to the United States and highly criticized by the food aid community is called monetization: the sale of food aid to generate cash for development projects. While on a different scale and easier to target, the monetization of development food aid the practice hardly exists for emergency food aid ...

... Earnings. States Where the Most People Go Hungry. According to the report, between 2010 and 2012, an average of 20% of Mississippi households had low or very low food security. In that period, an average of one in 12 Arkansas households had at least one family member skip a meal or eat less because of a lack of money. These are the states where the most people go hungry. The states with the lowest food security, not surprisingly, are among the poorest in the country. In Mississippi and Arkansas, the two worst states for food security, median income was less than $40,000. Of the 10 states with the lowest food security, eight had the highest poverty rates in the country. Ross Fraser, spokesperson for hunger-relief charity Feeding America, explained that having low food security does not necessarily mean families are starving. It may surprise some that, in fact, the majority of the 10 states with food access problems have higher-than-average obesity rates. ...

... UNICEF and nutrition security in a crisis of food. In particular are the consequences for children’s health, nutrition and education as well as the health of vulnerable women. When caregivers seek work or food away from home, the caring and feeding practices for children at home will diminish. Children must have secure access to food, coupled with a healthy environment that includes access to health care, water and adequate care. For aid and development agencies such as UNICEF, the long-standing effort to protect child health and nutrition will continue with the expansion and enhancement of programmes already in place. Other actions encompass: strengthen the monitoring systems and assessment of the nutritional status and other impacts and mapping vulnerabilities; advocacy for the protection of children, scaling up national nutrition programmes and supporting health interventions, including promoting optimum breastfeeding and complementary feeding practices as well as school feeding ...

... Investment Advisor. August 1, 2012 Jeremy Grantham: Today a Food Crisis, Tomorrow ‘Dystopia’ Doomsaying hedge fund manager calls the veneer of global stability ‘perilously thin’. High-performing hedge fund manager Jeremy Grantham is known for his doom-and-gloom outlook. Consistently, he has urged investors to be overweight natural resources. This is largely because the new era beginning 10 years ago of rising resource prices he started writing about a year ago has been aggravated by what he sees as the start five years ago of a full-blown food crisis. The current spike in corn prices is more worrisome than the previous 2008 food crisis because the poor U.S. The strategically important Middle Eastern country is already staggering under rising food prices that consume more than 40% of its food budget in contrast to the 10% or 12% of developed-country budgets. Grantham believes sufficient efforts to stem a food crisis will not be taken. While food crisis is ...

The technical papers and country papers presented in the consultation examined the aspects as relevant to: a the importance of peanut crop in the household food security and b gender roles in the peanut sector. From the view point of household food security, peanuts have a high protein content. Hence they can be an important item in the food chain to improve the nutritional status of children, women and the aged. In terms of access, peanuts are cheaper than animal product as a protein base. As a cash crop, peanuts provide opportunity to earn an income thus increasing the family's ability to purchase a better quality food resulting in improved nutrition.

In 2012, countries across the Sahel are once again facing a serious food crisis as the rains have failed to come. This ecologically fragile region is becoming even more vulnerable as grazing areas for livestock are disappearing, affecting millions of pastoralists across this region of Africa. Grazing areas for their livestock are also fast disappearing, and as a result, their livelihoods are being threatened as the desertification takes its grip. Oxfam is working to raise USD37 million to reach around one million people across the Sahel region with vital aid such as food, cash, support to livestock, water, ...

Many people are already living in a food crisis. Prices for yellow maize, used mainly as feed for livestock, are already above US$300 per tonne, and are now projected to exceed $350 per tonne in the coming months and into 2013, the USDA said. Maize prices climbed by 23 percent in July alone, according to the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organisation FAO. With maize supplies down and prices up, the USDA anticipates that demand for wheat will grow as a number of countries opt to replace maize with wheat to feed animals. “This puts the global maize supplies in a very delicate situation. Another Food Crisis Unlikely. FAO is monitoring the situation closely but, for the time being, does not believe this situation will push the world into yet another food crisis.”. In response to IRIN via email, the USDA said, “Our August projections in no way suggest a US or world wheat supply and demand situation like that in 2007/08.”. Cornell University’s Barrett echoed the FAO, saying, ...

... David Nabarro, Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Food Security and Nutrition. I am pleased to send greetings to the 40th session of the Committee on World Food Security. The 1974 World Food Conference, which recommended this Committee’s foundation, resolved that all governments should work for the day when “ no child will go to bed hungry … no family will fear for its next day's bread and … no human being's future and capacities will be stunted by malnutrition.”. I share the Committee’s vision of eliminating hunger. It is based on promoting sustainable family-based farming and food systems that minimize loss or waste of food. This Committee is the point of reference for all who seek to achieve this vision through collaboration with governments, social movements, farmers’ organizations, business and the research community. The reformed Committee on World Food Security addresses food security crises while also seeking to tackle the ...

Food Deserts. On the USDA’s website, a Food Desert Locator maps low-income communities with low access to supermarkets that sell fresh produce and healthy food options. As defined, “low-income” is determined by a poverty rate of 20 percent or higher, or a medium family income at or below 80 percent of the area’s medium family income; a “low-access community” is one in which 500 people or 33 percent of the census tract’s population lives more than one mile from a large grocery story for rural census tracts, the distance is more than 10 miles. A massive misconception about communities without access to fresh, healthy produce and foods is that they do not care about their health or learning nutrition education. In most cases, the plight of low-income communities and communities of color is a problem of equality. According to USDA, in 2012, 48.8 million people lived in food-insecure households, 11.3 million adults lived in households with very low food ...

Catholic NGOs Miss the Boat on the Food Crisis. The recent dramatic rise of food prices reflects the worst agricultural crisis of the last 30 years, especially for developing countries whose citizens inevitably spend a larger portion of their incomes for basic needs. But the price of corn, wheat, rice, milk and soybeans have increased even more so; corn and wheat have shot up 70% and rice is up 141% compared to January 2007. In the United States subsidies given to farmers that grow corn used for the production of biofuel ethanol. In Australia, a terrible draught that has lasted 2 years and compromised 60% of the agricultural production. Increasing demand for rice, wheat, meat in China and India Decrease of cultivated land especially in China and India, where agricultural districts are transformed in industrial areas.

... Haiti's Food Crisis: Imposing Hunger on the People of Haiti. Haiti's Food Crisis: Imposing Hunger on the People of Haiti. It’s an imposed hunger, an imposed starvation on the people of Haiti. It has a history going way back. To begin with, in 1804 after Haiti became independent, France and the slave-owning nations imposed a debt on Haiti. Instead that money went to France, from 1826 until 1947 when Haiti finished paying the last installment on the debt. What does this have to do with imposed hunger. And that is why with respect to this whole issue of debt, the people of Haiti and Brother Aristide demanded that France return the money that was paid in reparations. It is possible, but it will take some time to calculate the reparations that should be paid to Haiti. Because of the history of struggle by the Haitian peasantry, many Haitians had their own small plots of land on which they independently cultivated food for their families and provided for the local market. So Haitians were ...

The coming “lean season” is predicted to be the third food crisis in less than a decade and highlights a set of glaring vulnerabilities in a region facing severe long-term threats to health, livelihoods, and security. However, as international agencies call for funding to mount yet another emergency response, serious concerns are being raised about what is or isn’t being done to address the root causes of vulnerability.

... 2010-06-10 12:16. Kinshasa - Food prices Democratic Republic of Congo have jumped 28% in the six-month period to March 2010, resulting in acute malnutrition in some areas of the central African country, a UN agency said on Wednesday. "This rise was particularly notable in 11 cities," including Lubumbashi, the country's second largest city in the southeast and the copper capital, said Stefania Trassari, spokesperson for the UN Office for the Co-ordination of Humanitarian Affairs, quoting the World Food Programme. Mbandaka, the main city of northwestern Equateur province, and Mbuji-Mayi, the diamond capital of Kasai-Oriental, were also affected. Trassari said an enquiry in five of DRC's 11 provinces in February revealed that "global acute malnutrition is 10% above the warning threshold" in these regions. Many younger people were therefore leaving the farming sector for more lucrative mining, or join armed groups, she added. With bananas a staple second only to manioc, food security in ...

However some 36 countries around the world are still in need of external assistance as a result of crop failures, conflict or insecurity, or continuing local high prices, the report noted. “The great uncertainty now enveloping international markets and the threat of global recession may tempt countries towards protectionism and towards reassessing their commitments to international development aid,” Diouf said. “It would be unfortunate if this were to be the case and the recently mobilized political will towards enhanced international support for developing country agriculture were to evaporate,” he added. From pan to fire Diouf noted that the financial crisis, following hard on the heels of the soaring food price crisis which threw an additional 75 million people into hunger and poverty in 2007 alone, may well deepen the plight of the poor in developing countries. The impact of the financial crisis may also be felt in developing countries at the macro level, with further potentially negative effects ...

(1/1030) Validation of measures of food insecurity and hunger.

The most recent survey effort to determine the extent of food insecurity and hunger in the United States, the Food Security Supplement, included a series of questions to assess this complex phenomenon. The primary measure developed from this Food Security Supplement was based on measurement concepts, methods and items from two previously developed measures. This paper presents the evidence available that questionnaire-based measures, in particular the national food security measure, provide valid measurement of food insecurity and hunger for population and individual uses. The paper discusses basic ideas about measurement and criteria for establishing validity of measures and then uses these criteria to structure an examination of the research results available to establish the validity of food security measures. The results show that the construction of the national food security measure is well grounded in our understanding of food insecurity and hunger, its performance is consistent with that understanding, it is precise within usual performance standards, dependable, accurate at both group and individual levels within reasonable performance standards, and its accuracy is attributable to the well-grounded understanding. These results provide strong evidence that the Food Security Supplement provides valid measurement of food insecurity and hunger for population and individual uses. Further validation research is required for subgroups of the population, not yet studied for validation purposes, to establish validity for monitoring population changes in prevalence and to develop and validate robust and contextually sensitive measures in a variety of countries that reflect how people experience and think about food insecurity and hunger.  (+info)

(2/1030) Measuring food insecurity and hunger in the United States: development of a national benchmark measure and prevalence estimates.

Since 1992, the U.S. Department of Agriculture Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) has led a collaborative effort to develop a comprehensive benchmark measure of the severity and prevalence of food insecurity and hunger in the United States. Based on prior research and wide consultation, a survey instrument specifically relevant to U.S. conditions was designed and tested. Through its Current Population Survey (CPS), the U.S. Bureau of the Census has fielded this instrument each year since 1995. A measurement scale was derived from the data through fitting, testing and validating a Rasch scale. The unidimensional Rasch model corresponds to the form of the phenomenon being measured, i.e., the severity of food insufficiency due to inadequate resources as directly experienced and reported in U.S. households. A categorical measure reflecting designated ranges of severity on the scale was constructed for consistent comparison of prevalence estimates over time and across population groups. The technical basis and initial results of the new measure were reported in September 1997. For the 12 months ending April 1995, an estimated 11.9% of U.S. households (35 million persons) were food insecure. Among these, 4.1% of households (with 6.9 million adults and 4.3 million children) showed a recurring pattern of hunger due to inadequate resources for one or more of their adult and/or child members sometime during the period. The new measure has been incorporated into other federal surveys and is being used by researchers throughout the U.S. and Canada.  (+info)

(3/1030) Economic determinants and dietary consequences of food insecurity in the United States.

This paper reviews recent research on the economic determinants and dietary consequences of food insecurity and hunger in the United States. The new Current Population Study (CPS) food insecurity and hunger measure shows that hunger rates decline sharply with rising incomes. Despite this strong relationship, confirmed in other national datasets, a one-to-one correspondence between poverty-level incomes and hunger does not exist. In 1995, 13.1% of those in poverty experienced hunger and half of those experiencing hunger had incomes above the poverty level. Panel data indicate that those who are often food insufficient are much more likely than food-sufficient households to have experienced recent events that stress household budgets, such as losing a job, gaining a household member or losing food stamps. Cross-sectional work also demonstrates the importance of food stamps because benefit levels are inversely related to food insufficiency. Concern for the dietary consequences of domestic food insufficiency is well placed; recent research shows that the odds of consuming intakes <50% of the recommended dietary allowance (RDA) are higher for adult women and elderly individuals from food-insufficient households. Preschoolers from food-insufficient households do not consume significantly lower amounts than those from food-sufficient households, but mean intakes for the rest of members in those very same households are significantly lower for the food insufficient. This research highlights the importance of food insecurity and hunger indicators, further validates the use of self-reported measures and points to areas of need for future research and interventions.  (+info)

(4/1030) Nutrition and health outcomes associated with food insecurity and hunger.

This paper explores how food insecurity and hunger relate to health and nutrition outcomes in food-rich countries such as the United States. It focuses on two subgroups of the population for whom data are available: women of childbearing age and school-age children. Special consideration is given to examining how food insecurity relates to these outcomes independently of socioeconomic status and poverty. In a population-based sample of women of childbearing age, the least severe level of food insecurity (household food insecurity) was correlated with higher body mass index (BMI), controlling for other available and known influences on obesity including income level. In low income school-age children from two large urban areas of the U.S., risk of hunger and hunger were associated with compromised psychosocial functioning, controlling for maternal education and estimated household income. The nutrition and health consequences of food insecurity comprise a potentially rich area for future, socially relevant research in the field of nutritional sciences.  (+info)

(5/1030) Food insecurity: consequences for the household and broader social implications.

A conceptual framework showing the household and social implications of food insecurity was elicited from a qualitative and quantitative study of 98 households from a heterogeneous low income population of Quebec city and rural surroundings; the study was designed to increase understanding of the experience of food insecurity in order to contribute to its prevention. According to the respondents' description, the experience of food insecurity is characterized by two categories of manifestations, i.e., the core characteristics of the phenomenon and a related set of actions and reactions by the household. This second category of manifestations is considered here as a first level of consequences of food insecurity. These consequences at the household level often interact with the larger environment to which the household belongs. On a chronic basis, the resulting interactions have certain implications that are tentatively labeled "social implications" in this paper. Their examination suggests that important aspects of human development depend on food security. It also raises questions concerning the nature of socially acceptable practices of food acquisition and food management, and how such acceptability can be assessed. Guidelines to that effect are proposed. Findings underline the relevance and urgency of working toward the realization of the right to food.  (+info)

(6/1030) Women's dietary intakes in the context of household food insecurity.

A study of food insecurity and nutritional adequacy was conducted with a sample of 153 women in families receiving emergency food assistance in Toronto, Canada. Contemporaneous data on dietary intake and household food security over the past 30 d were available for 145 of the women. Analyses of these data revealed that women who reported hunger in their households during the past 30 d also reported systematically lower intakes of energy and a number of nutrients. The effect of household-level hunger on intake persisted even when other economic, socio-cultural, and behavioral influences on reported dietary intake were considered. Estimated prevalences of inadequacy in excess of 15% were noted for Vitamin A, folate, iron, and magnesium in this sample, suggesting that the low levels of intake associated with severe household food insecurity are in a range that could put women at risk of nutrient deficiencies.  (+info)

(7/1030) Abbreviated measures of food sufficiency validly estimate the food security level of poor households: measuring household food security.

This study was designed to develop an abbreviated method that captures both the qualitative and quantitative dimensions of household food security (HFS). Women in poor and very poor households (n = 238) in a peri-urban barrio in Caracas, Venezuela, provided data on food availability and their perception of food resource constraints and hunger experiences within the home. Socioeconomic data and food-related behavior that may predict HFS levels were gathered. On average, the top 12 food contributors of energy provided 81% and predicted more than 90% of the variation in households' total energy availability using stepwise regression analysis. On the other hand, a 4-point 12-item scale was shown to have face, content and construct validity with reiterative testing, factor analysis and a Chronbach's alpha coefficient of 0.92. Assessing predictors of energy availability together with a self-perceived HFS scale may provide a valid and reliable method for identifying and monitoring food security levels among poor urban households.  (+info)

(8/1030) Developing the effectiveness of an intersectoral food policy coalition through formative evaluation.

There is a difference between bringing parties together and making them work effectively. We present a case study of an intersectoral food policy Committee, part of a three-tiered coalition nested within local municipal government, which sought to promote and nutrition in a rapidly growing metropolitan region by tackling food supply issues in the first instance. This was new territory for all players. After 12 months, the group felt it was floundering and requested an evaluation. In-depth qualitative interviews with committee members (n = 21) and quantitative assessment of Committee processes revealed insufficient mechanisms for engaging new members, conflict between perceived roles for the group and a notable lack of confidence in the group's capacity to achieve its goals, or outcome efficacy. Feedback of the data and subsequent discussion led to a reform of project structure, stronger mechanisms to realize its goals and better incentive management, or ways to maximize the benefits and limit the costs for the diverse parties involved. The impact was reflected in a 4 year time series analysis of media releases, decision making and related municipal government actions. The study illustrates how theory-informed formative evaluation can help to improve health promotion practice.  (+info)

  • We now know the FDA says they cant have any control on our food supply and we know the chinese will put anything in their exports.
  • Japan


Why is the government poisoning the food supply with iron?


  • The government poisons the food supply with iron by putting it in all flour, even though there is evidence that excessive iron can lead to liver disease, diabetes, impotence, sterility, heart failure, sudden death, headaches, vascular damage, strokes, degenerative nerve disease, dementia, memory loss, vision problems, depression, lethargy, poor job performance, personality changes, poor judgment, slow reaction time, deadly accidents, stomachaches, breast cancer, poor digestion and improper metabolism. Sweden began to fortify its food with iron in 1948. By 1977, the incidence of liver cancer had increased by 350%. In 1995, iron fortification of foods in Sweden was discontinued. Why is the US government still poisoning the food with this stuff?
  • Some group of health conscious people out insisted iron be added to white flour to combat anemia. The reason that enriched flour is "enriched" as opposed to "fortified" is because the nutrients are added for the purpose of replacing those lost in the flour processing, not introducing nutrients that were never in the food originally. Yet, we now have a different group of health conscious people who are concerned too much iron is in our diet. If you don't want extra iron in you flour, buy whole wheat flour.


How is it possible that we have enough food supplies to feed everyone daily?


  • How is it possible we have enough chickens pigs cows lamb and food to feed us everyday? How is this possible there are billions of people in America and Australia how to we keep them all feed on a daily bassis? There are so many mouths to feed and babies. Do you think that there will ever be a shotage in food supplies as the population increases in the future? What are they're plans of action to do about that? Of course I'm talking about a time when we will become over populated. 10 pts if you can answer all these questions.
  • There are more cows, pigs, chicken, and lambs than humans in the world. And I think it would be a lot of work keeping everyone in the world fed. Sooner or later the human population will be extent, so yeah, there will be a food shortage. But as for the time being, Americans wastes so much food and there are plently of obese people who can afford to lay off the cheese burgers and french fries.


Do you keep an emergency food supply stocked at all times?


  • I live in the Northeast on the coast where we haven't ever had a problem with any kind of severe weather. My power company was out for five days to a couple thousand people and we didn't have any way to cook or freeze/keep food cool during that time so now I'll know better in case it ever happens again. Do you keep any kind of emergency food supply? Oh and what do you keep in it???
  • Plenty of canned meats, canned fish and canned veg. You can keep these in a cool dark place and use as necessary. Buy a small primus stove too; you can then warm up soups, etc., and have a nice cup of tea with the biscuits you've stocked up!


How do restaurants get their food supplies?


  • How do restaurants get their food supplies? i.e. ordering meat in bulk rather than going to the grocery stores? My aunt owns a restaurant and she does all her shopping at the local grocery stores and I just feel this is an ineffective way to supply her restaurant with food and it is also more costly.
  • you get a food supplier, and then a separate produce company if you use enough produce, milk and bread are often from other vendors


How does body bacteria, life if food supplies cut?


  • I.e. if you wear slippers they smell, but how does the bacteria multiply if you take off the slippers, and cut off the food supply to the bacteria aka sweat. And does the bacteria sit there until next time you slip on the slippers? How long can bacteria survive without sweat, amino acids etc.
  • The bacteria will literally eat your shoes/ slippers. . Sweat just makes the environment bacterial friendly. They will live and multiply until the shoe is gone! Throw your slippers in the washing machine. Same is true, and it is especially noticeable with swimming suits. If your suit is a year or two old, you will see it start falling apart. This is bacteria literally eating the suit. Yes, they can eat lycra, it is one of their favorites. Disgusting... but... true.


Why doesn't government allow labeling of genetically engineered foods and meats?


  • I do want to know what I am buying, and because of them letting the cloned beefs into the food supply, I don't eat any of it because I don't know which is cloned and which is Regular Organic Beef. How can I find out as to what meat or food I'm purchasing? I've longed stop buying corn because of them genetically engineering this, but so many of our by products are derived from corn also, how can we know which corn is grown from the land or again genetically engineered?
  • Personally, I am a vegan and I eat 95% raw food because it tastes good and I feel better, and can work harder. :). I disagree with the above answer, Organic food is MUCH better for you and that is what I eat. Now, I believe that the government does not seem to care so much about this stuff. We have pork chops served to patients who just got over heart surgery. Its crazy. The FDA is not allowing some herbalists to help[ others to get well, like Dr. Schulze (www.herbdoc.com), he was in jail six times in his life. I read an article that stated the CIA was selling Cocaine in Central LA to help pay for the war in Iraq, not sure if it is true or not though, most likely is :(. So, I think that the government does not car about nutrition. Seems to me like the reason that we have ALL these problems is because of sin really. They want to make more money, that is why they do it. You would not have antibiotics in your milk, or growth hormones if they did not want to make more money. The milk is bad, so they drug it and feed it to you. We would not have genetically modified foods or hybrid foods or chemical fertilizers EXCEPT that they want to make more money. This is the same reason that Tyson did their false advertising 'antibiotic free chicken'. Always check to see if something is truly natural, shampoo says natural but it is NOT AT ALL. So, when they grow fruits and veggies, here is what they want: it to look good, feel good, have long shelf life, and to MAKE THEM MONEY. They do not care about it tasting good or being good for you. This is why organic tastes MUCH BETTER. If it is not in the soil, it is not in your food. Hope that helps and God bless you!


Cloned foods in the United States: How do you feel about it?


  • Does anyone else find it I find it ironic that the United States has considered cloning and stem cell research unethical; yet the FDA has no problem providing the citizens of this country with cloned products. It's not ok to research it, yet it's ok to eat it? Is that what I'm getting? How do you guys feel about the FDA's statement to release cloned food products into our country's food supply? I should be more clear on that: not necessarily the US's position, but Bush's.
  • The USDA,FDA,EPA all have lobbyists for the meat industry.They protect the industry,not the consumer.Just to let you know,the USDA tests less than 1% of the animals killed for food.Alisa Harrison was the spokesperson for the National Cattleman's Beef Association for fifteen years,she is now the working for the USDA as a high up secretary. The FDA's draft assesment to approve cloned meat and milk relied heavily on research carried out by Cyagra and Viagen,two big animal cloning companies.That is like tobacco companies trying to tell you that cigarettes are safe,it wasn't even carried out by a third party study. It is has been found that 60% of the public does not want to eat from cloned animals,yet the FDA has stated that it cannot require labeling.This situaion has already happened before,in 1995 the Bush Administration approved for the sale of genetically modified foods for human consumption,it didn't not require labeling either.Why?Their reason was that no one would buy it if they knew.That just goes to show you that they are protecting the industry,not the consumers.I'm really not shocked by this,but many people don't about the industry or where their food comes from. ~The USDA Food Guide Pyramid available through 2005 recommended that meat, poultry, fish, and eggs comprise 14% of the diet, yet 52% of USDA food promotion resources were allocated to these foods. The Pyramid said 33% of the diet should come from fruits and vegetables — which received only 5% of the USDA promotion budget. --Produce for Better Health Foundation ~France,which only has a fraction of the U.S. cattle population,has tested more cattle in a single week than the U.S. tested in an entire decade! ~According to Europe's latest annual report,it is testing at a rate 2,000 times that of the U.S.
