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

Measuring food insecurity and hunger in the United States: development of a national benchmark measure and prevalence estimates. (2/1030)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)
Economic determinants and dietary consequences of food insecurity in the United States. (3/1030)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.

Nutrition and health outcomes associated with food insecurity and hunger. (4/1030)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)
Food insecurity: consequences for the household and broader social implications. (5/1030)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)
Women's dietary intakes in the context of household food insecurity. (6/1030)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.

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

Developing the effectiveness of an intersectoral food policy coalition through formative evaluation. (8/1030)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)
Is the adapted Household Food Insecurity Access Scale (HFIAS) developed internationally to measure food insecurity valid in...
Background The concept of food insecurity encompasses three dimensions. One of these dimensions, the access component of household food insecurity is measured through the use of the Household Food Insecurity Access Scale (HFIAS). Despite its application in Ethiopia and other similar developing countries, its performance is still poorly explored. Our study aims to evaluate the validity of the HFIAS in Ethiopia. Methods We conducted repeated cross-sectional studies in urban and rural villages of the Butajera District in southern Ethiopia. The validation was conducted on a pooled sample of 1,516 households, which were selected using a simple random sampling method. The HFIAS was translated into the local Amharic language and tested for face validity. We also evaluated the tool’s internal consistency using Cronbach’s alpha and factor analysis. We tested for parallelism on HFIAS item response curves across wealth status and further evaluated the presence of a dose-response relationship ...

USDA ERS - Chart Detail
Each year a portion of American households are food insecure-they struggle to afford enough food for all household members. Very low food security, the severe range of food insecurity, affected 5 percent of U.S. households in 2015. Members of households with very low food security reported cutting back on or skipping meals, and in some cases, going a whole day without eating. The prevalence of very low food security varies considerably across household characteristics. Single mother and single father households, women and men living alone, Black non-Hispanic and Hispanic headed households, households with incomes near or below poverty, and households in nonmetropolitan counties have rates of very low food security significantly above the national average. Rates were highest for households with incomes below the Federal poverty line-about 17 percent were very low food secure in 2015. This chart is drawn from a chart that appears in the ERS infographic, "What Is Very Low Food Security and Who ...

Severe food insecurity is associated with obesity among Brazilian adolescent females. - Oxford Clinical Trials Research Unit
OBJECTIVE: To determine whether household food insecurity (HFI) is associated with a higher prevalence of excessive weight (EW) in a large random sample of Brazilian female adolescents. DESIGN: Nationally representative cross-sectional study. EW was the outcome variable (BMI ≥ 85th percentile of WHO reference for adolescents aged 15-18 years and BMI ≥ 25 kg/m(2) for those aged 19 years). HFI was measured with the Brazilian Food Insecurity Scale. Associations were measured using crude and adjusted prevalence ratios (PR) with 95 % confidence intervals through Poisson regression models taking into account the complex sampling design. SETTING: Data were derived from the third wave of the Demographic and Health Survey conducted in 2006-2007, in Brazil. SUBJECTS: The sample included 1529 female adolescents aged 15-19 years. RESULTS: The prevalence of any level of HFI was 40.8 %, with 26.6 % of households experiencing mild, 9.4 % moderate and 4.8 % severe food insecurity. The overall prevalence of EW was

Text of S. 1252 (114th): Global Food Security Act of 2016 (Passed Congress version) - GovTrack.us
Dr. Jason DeCaro publishes "Household-level Predictors of Maternal Mental Health and Systemic Inflammation among Infants in...
Objectives: Household conditions and culturally/socially variable childcare practices influence priming of the inflammatory response during infancy. Maternal mental health may partially mediate that effect. Among mother- infant dyads in Mwanza, Tanzania, we hypothesized that poorer maternal mental health would be associated with adverse household ecology, lower social capital, and greater inflammation among infants under the age of one; and that mental health would mediate any effects of household ecology/social capital on inflammation. Methods: We collected dried blood spots from mother-infant dyads (N588) at health centers near Mwanza, Tanzania. To assess household ecology and social capital, we conducted interviews with mothers using the Household Food Insecurity Access Scale, the MacArthur Subjective Social Status Scale, and a household wealth inventory. We employed the Hopkins Symptom Checklist to assess maternal mental health. A high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (CRP) assay was used to ...

Is Agribusiness Responsible For Food Crisis In the South? - GCSE Design & Technology - Marked by Teachers.com
Introduction. IS AGRIBUSINESS RESPONSIBLE FOR FOOD CRISIS IN THE SOUTH? SHOULD AGRIBUSINESS ACTIVITIES IN THE SOUTH BE MORE STRICTLY CONTROLLED? The entire world has, according to some observers, now entered an Age of Scarcity that requires a fundamental shift in national and international policies (The Agribusiness Council, 1975:1) This opening quote stresses the problem of food crisis, even in 1975, and suggests the need for some sort of control. The present day situation is often considered worse but in this essay I hope to investigate this. I am going to describe what has come about to be known as agribusiness, and what effect it has had on the global South. I will attempt to decipher whether agribusiness is responsible for food crisis, and identify the other factors and causes that have certainly contributed to the situation. The final part of this essay will look at what is and can be done to control the activities of agribusiness in the South. Agribusiness is a term used to describe the ...
Smart solutions to secure urban food supply - WUR
The world is becoming ever more urban. Today already more than half of the worlds population lives in urban areas. By 2050, two-thirds of the worlds population will live in cities. The continuous increase of urban population is due to factors like rural-urban migration, natural disasters or livelihood insecurities. Providing food and nutrition security for the rapidly expanding populations in the worlds cities is a pressing challenge in this changing world. Delivering nutritious food to cities is a complex problem that is also challenged by natural resource scarcity, climate change, and population growth, adding pressure to food systems globally. Against the background of these developments, achieving urban food and nutrition security calls for integrated and innovative solutions.
People With Food Insecurity Are 10% to 37% More Likely to Die Prematurely
Adults with food insecurity (i.e., inadequate access to food because of financial constraints) are 10% to 37% more likely to die prematurely from any cause other than cancer compared to food-secure people, found new research published today (January 20, 2020) in CMAJ (Canadian Medical Association Journal).. "Among adults who died prematurely, those experiencing severe food insecurity died at an age 9 years earlier than their food-secure counterparts," writes lead author Dr. Fei Men, a postdoctoral fellow in the lab of Professor Valerie Tarasuk at the University of Toronto.. Researchers looked at data from the Canadian Community Health Survey 2005-2017 on more than half a million (510 010) adults in Canada. They categorized people as food secure, or marginally, moderately or severely food insecure. By the end of the study period, 25 460 people had died prematurely, with people who were severely food insecure dying 9 years younger than their food-secure counterparts (59.5 years old versus 68.9 ...

10.09.07 - UN calls emergency meeting on food crisis
Two years after the last food crisis, food inflation is back. Soaring global food prices have prompted London and food industry experts to warn that the cost of the weekly groceries is set to rise by up to 10 percent in the coming months. As in 2008, rocketing prices are the result of rising demand and supply shortages caused by freak weather and poor harvests. Moreover, these conditions are exacerbated by speculation on commodity markets and changing diets in fast-growing Asian countries. Last week, the UNs Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) called an emergency meeting for Sept. 24 to discuss the food crisis. In Mozambique, riots broke out following the governments decision to raise bread prices by 30 percent, leaving seven people dead and hundreds injured. At the same time the Russian government extended its export ban on wheat by another 12 months as it battles drought, shortages and inflation at home, which threatens to push up prices further. European wheat prices hit more than 231 ...

Global Food Security: 2016
Food policies which do not address the root causes of world hunger would be bound to fail", she [the new United Nations Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food, Prof Hilal Elver] told a packed audience in Amsterdam. One billion people globally are hungry, she declared, before calling on governments to support a transition to "agricultural democracy" which would empower rural small farmers." "The 2009 global food crisis signaled the need for a turning point in the global food system", she said at the event hosted by the Transnational Institute (TNI), a leading international think tank. In the Caribbean region we are going to be affected by climate change, as we all realize, or should realize, climate change has already started affecting most countries. In the Caribbean the IPCC states By mid-century, climate change is expected to reduce water resources in many small islands, e.g. in the Caribbean and Pacific, to the point where they become insufficient to meet demand during low-rainfall ...
Food Insecurity, Nutritional Deprivation, and Child Functioning in Rural China | Population Studies Center
Food insecurity is usually defined as limited or uncertain access to enough food due to financial resource constraints, or as inadequate food intake. According to the Food and Agriculture Organizations State of Food Insecurity in the World (1999), 800 million people were food insecure worldwide, and 164 million people in China suffered food insecurity in 1999. The implications of food insecurity for childrens functioning are not yet well established, particularly in less-developed countries where the problem is likely to be most pronounced. Food insecurity is related to the nutritional status of children, a topic about which much has been written in developing country contexts, but food insecurity is not synonymous with nutritional status. Food insecurity has been linked via both nutritional and non-nutritional pathways to adverse outcomes in children.. ...
Food crisis adds to Pakistan-Afghanistan tensions
It would be hard to think of a more complex web of problems. Pakistan and Afghanistan face, in very different ways, severe domestic political crises which are being exacerbated by soaring prices and food shortages. Both blame each other for failing to crack down on the Taliban and al Qaeda. And now tensions are rising over attempts by Pakistan, the traditional supplier of food to Afghanistan, to curb its wheat exports to make sure it can feed its own hungry population.. For an idea of how significant this is in Afghanistan, its worth reading this piece in the Chicago Tribune. "Western officials - including officers with the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force - say the food crisis is potentially more destabilizing to the U.S.-backed government of President Hamid Karzai than the insurgency itself," it says.. The website Registan.net followed this up by saying that the food crisis will drive more people into the arms of the Taliban. "Hungry, disenfranchised people are angry people," ...

Sustainable Potato Production: Global Case Studies - beck-shop.de
Potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) is grown in over 100 countries throughout the world. As a staple food, potato is the fourth most important crop after rice, wheat, and maize, and has historically contributed to food and nutrition security in the world. Global interest in potato increased recently as world food prices soared, threatening the global food security and stability. Unlike major cereals, potato is not a globally traded commodity, and prices are usually determined by local production costs. Thus, potato is increasingly regarded as a vital food-security crop and as a substitute for costly cereal imports. With such importance, the 29 chapters in the edited book address the issues of sustainable potato production. This book begins with an introduction on sustainable potato production and global food security, and then presents eight case studies selected globally and covering different issues relevant to sustainable potato production in both developed and developing countries ...
Household food insecurity and childhood overweight in Jamaica and Québec: a gender-based analysis | BMC Public Health | Full...
Childhood overweight is not restricted to developed countries: a number of lower- and middle-income countries are struggling with the double burden of underweight and overweight. Another public health problem that concerns both developing and, to a lesser extent, developed countries is food insecurity. This study presents a comparative gender-based analysis of the association between household food insecurity and overweight among 10-to-11-year-old children living in the Canadian province of Québec and in the country of Jamaica. Analyses were performed using data from the 2008 round of the Québec Longitudinal Study of Child Development and the Jamaica Youth Risk and Resiliency Behaviour Survey of 2007. Cross-sectional data were obtained from 1190 10-year old children in Québec and 1674 10-11-year-old children in Jamaica. Body mass index was derived using anthropometric measurements and overweight was defined using Coles age- and sex-specific criteria. Questionnaires were used to collect data on food

Differences in food insecurity between adults and children in Zimbabwe
Downloadable (with restrictions)! Food insecurity is a serious challenge facing millions of households across Africa. Within these households, distinguishing the incidence of food insecurity between adults and children is often difficult because most surveys rely on the reports of adults. In this paper, we address this shortcoming of previous work by using a survey from over 6000 households in Zimbabwe where interviews were conducted with both an adult caregiver and a child. Using two measures of food insecurity, we find that reports of adults and children differ within households with lower reports of food insecurity among children, with children in the youngest age groups particularly being protected from food shortages. An exception to this general rule, though, is in better-off households where children are often more likely to be food insecure than adults. Findings also demonstrate the need for multiple measures to comprehensively capture the full picture of food insecurity in the household.
The Food Crisis and Gender | By | Common Dreams
Statistics on the most recent global food crisis are well known. In the three years leading up to June 2008, food prices rose 83%. Although declining since, they are still 60% higher than in 2006. There is little prospect of returning to the cheap food regimes that characterized the world prior to 2005 anytime in the foreseeable future.
Self-reported food insecurity in Africa during the food price crisis
Downloadable (with restrictions)! This article analyzes data on self-reported food insecurity of more than 50,000 individuals in 18 Sub-Saharan African countries over the period 2005-2008, when global food prices increased dramatically. The average level of self-reported food insecurity was high but remarkably stable over time, at about 54%. However, this average hides large heterogeneity, both within countries and across countries. In eight of the sample countries, self-reported food security improved, while it worsened in the ten other countries. Our results suggest that heterogeneous effects in self-reported food security are consistent with economic predictions, as they are correlated with economic growth and net food consumption (both at the household and country level). Specifically, in the face of rising food prices, self-reported food security improved on average in rural households, while it worsened in urban households - a finding that holds when using global prices or domestic food prices.

Urban Food Deserts Threaten Children's Health | Market Makeovers
January 29, 2010 by Marian Wright Edelman, The Huffington Post. If any of us were forced to live in a desert wed probably find trying to survive in a barren, desolate wasteland difficult. But through a series of public policies and private sector decisions, millions of mostly low-income and minority families in America have been condemned to subsist in vast urban "food deserts" that pose serious health threats to their children. Food deserts, areas with no or distant grocery stores, are generally in communities where most residents can buy food only at "convenience" stores, liquor stores, gas stations, or fast food restaurants that sell foods high in fat, sugar, and salt. Getting to stores that offer a greater variety of foods is often challenging since many families lack cars and many city and state governments have cut back on investments in public transportation. When many Americans are resolving to eat more healthfully in the new year, children and families living in "food deserts" often ...
Difference between revisions of "Food insecurity" - SEG Wiki
The American Psychological Association has stated that food insecurity is a serious threat to public health. In 2010 the [United States Department of Agriculture] found that over 17 million households in the United Sates suffered from food insecurity.  The rates were considerably higher for low-income single women with children. The percentage of food insecure families with children who were employed was 85% indicating that wages were not sufficient enough to afford adequate amounts of food.  The lack of food security is detrimental to the development of children as it leads to weak health, which can then affect behavior and psychological development. Children who do not receive proper nutrition score lower in school, showing an association between food insecurity and performance in school.  In some cases, obesity can be a result of food insecurity, this is because families can only afford nutrient deficient and unhealthy foods to feed every member of the household. These households ...

Report urges US commitment to addressing impact of climate change on global food security - World Hunger News
June 13, 2014) US government action can curb the risks climate change poses to global food security, says a new report (PDF) released by The Chicago Council on Global Affairs.. Building on the recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate change report and National Climate Assessment, The Chicago Councils study explains how higher temperatures, changes in rainfall and natural disasters caused by climate change could undermine food production and put food supplies at risk. In total, climate change could reduce food production growth by 2 percent each decade for the rest of this century.. The report calls on the US government to integrate climate change adaptation into its global food security strategy. Recommendations include:. -Passing legislation for a long-term global food and nutrition security strategy.. -Increasing funding for agricultural research on climate change adaptation. Research priorities should include improving crop and livestock tolerance to higher temperatures and volatile ...

Food insecurity is an important risk factor for overweight and obesity among low-income populations in high income countries, but has not been well-studied among people living with HIV (PLHIV), particularly in resource-poor settings. To explore the association between food insecurity and overweight and obesity among PLHIV in the Dominican Republic, we conducted a cross-sectional study of 160 HIV-infected adults between March-December 2012 in four geographically-dispersed health centers (Santo Domingo, Puerto Plata, San Juan, and Higuey). We collected information on household food insecurity, anthropometric measurements, and socio-demographic data and ran descriptive and multivariate analyses, controlling for fixed effects of clinics and using robust standard errors. Mean age ± SD of participants was 39.9 ± 10.5 years; 68% were women, and 78% were on antiretroviral therapy (ART). A total of 58% reported severe household food insecurity. After controlling for age, gender, income, having children ...
ASSESSING THE DEGREE OF FOOD INSECURITY IN THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC: A PILOT PROJECT - AgEcon Search
The concept of food insecurity at the household and individual levels has been an area of extensive research in the late 1980s by individual researchers and public agencies. This work culminated in the development of the US Food Security Survey Module (FSSM), which is now seem to be the standard methodology of determining household foods security status, at least in countries with developed economies. One of the purposes of this study is to adapt the FSSM in the context of a less developed economy, and thereby assess the prevalence of food insecurity and hunger. The module was administered as a pilot in a household survey of 110 low-income families in the Dominican Republic. This study found that 93% of the respondent were food-insecure, some more so than others, and the percentage increasing as a higher degree of food deprivation was considered. A relatively small proportion of the food-insecure (20%) reported food insecurity without hunger. Households which experienced hunger-moderate and severe-
Climate Change: The Next Generation: Threat to future global food security from climate change and ozone air pollution, Nature...
Future food production is highly vulnerable to both climate change and air pollution with implications for global food security1, 2, 3, 4. Climate change adaptation and ozone regulation have been identified as important strategies to safeguard food production5, 6, but little is known about how climate and ozone pollution interact to affect agriculture, nor the relative effectiveness of these two strategies for different crops and regions. Here we present an integrated analysis of the individual and combined effects of 2000-2050 climate change and ozone trends on the production of four major crops (wheat, rice, maize and soybean) worldwide based on historical observations and model projections, specifically accounting for ozone-temperature co-variation. The projections exclude the effect of rising CO2, which has complex and potentially offsetting impacts on global food supply7, 8, 9, 10. We show that warming reduces global crop production by ,10% by 2050 with a potential to substantially worsen ...

Some neglected issues in food demand analysis: retail-level demand, health information and product quality - AgEcon Search
Food demand analysis is dominated by the econometric estimation of demand systems based on aggregate market data and steady progress has been made in analytical techniques. Yet some issues have been neglected in food demand analysis which are crucial for understanding recent consumption trends in industrialised countries. Three of these issues are dealt with here: analysis of food demand at the retail level; influence of health information on food demand; and importance of product quality for food demand. It is shown that answers to important questions in these areas can be given when large and unconventional data sets are used. Herrmann, Roland; Roeder, Claudia

Preventing Chronic Disease: July 2006: 05 0127
This study examines possible consequences of food insecurity as they relate to overweight, obesity, and chronic disease and highlights the need for further research on health status in the Appalachian region and the United States. The prevalence of food insecurity among this sample was more than 2.5 times the U.S. average rate (10.1%) in 1999 (3) and almost 3 times the Ohio average rate of household food insecurity at the time of the study (9.1%) (2).. A previous study suggested that even minimal levels of food insecurity are associated with poorer self-reported health status among individuals from an Appalachian Ohio county (6). Poor health status has also been associated with food insecurity in other studies (5,7-9). For adults, dietary quality can be negatively affected by food insecurity or insufficiency (11-13,15), and these suboptimal intakes could increase the publics risk of developing diet-related chronic diseases over time (12)..

Chronically ill poor Americans often must choose food over needed medicine | EmaxHealth
9: A psychiatric problem. Out of 9696 adult National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) participants who reported chronic illness, 23.4 percent reported cost associated medication underuse, while 18.8 percent reported food insecurity, and 11 percent reported both. Among adults who reported food insecurity there was a significantly higher likelihood to report cost associated medication underuse. These people were less likely to have public, non-Medicare insurance and to report participation in the Special Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program for Woman, Infants, and Children.. It was concluded that about 1 in 3 chronically ill NHIS participants are not able to afford food, medications, or both. There was less food insecurity and cost-related medication underuse seen in participants who have WIC and public health insurance..

Food Price Policy in an Era of Market Instability: A Political Economy Analysis - Oxford Scholarship
Food price volatility is one of the major challenges facing the global agricultural system today. This was most vividly illustrated during the global food crisis of 2007-9 when price spikes occurred for key staple food commodities-such as wheat, rice, maize, and soybeans. Given the variety of reactions by governments of countries experiencing similar food price shocks, the 2007-9 crisis offered an excellent natural experiment for generating knowledge on responses to price volatility in particular and on the political economy of agricultural policy-making more generally. This book contains the wealth of collaborative research by a global team of experts on food price policy-the research was undertaken on a sizeable group of low- and middle-income countries that were highly affected by the 2007-9 food crisis. The central aim of the study is to uncover which political economy factors-ranging from the constellation of different interest groups to the nature of political institutions-explain variations in
Food politics - Wikipedia
Offering government food assistance to the lowest income Americans dates back to the administration of President Franklin D. Roosevelt and has continued into the 21st century. In FY 2011, the budget for the USDA Food and Nutrition Service, which is responsible for the major feeding programs, was $107 billion. The largest single food assistance program in the country is the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, the provisions for which are contained in a Farm Bill that is re-authorized by Congress and signed by the president every five years. Benefits to SNAP recipients cost approximately $75 billion in 2012. Largely uncontroversial for most of its history, the SNAP program was targeted for major cuts by members of the House of Representatives in the 2012 Farm Bill re-authorization attempt. House leaders also endeavored to separate the SNAP program from the Farm Bill, splitting the long-standing coalition of urban and rural legislators who traditionally backed the renewals of funding ...

The Future of Aquaculture and Its Role in the Global Food System
There are only three fundamental sources for increasing seafood supply: 1) better management and utilization of wild fish stocks, 2) aquaculture and 3) aquaculture-enhanced wild fisheries. However, nearly all of the significant growth in global seafood harvest and international trade over the past three decades has, and in the future will, come from aquaculture. This has important implications for business, resource management, international trade and global food security. This is compounded by the scale and dynamics of emerging economies such as China and India. Aquaculture has had annual growth rates of over 7 percent in recent decades, it accounts for more than half of seafood supply and recently it passed the global production of beef. Despite this growth, the potential for added growth and improved efficiency in the aquaculture is still tremendous. As the aquaculture industry grows, uncertainty in quantity and price will likely decline relative to the traditional fishery sector. This will ...

Rice blast fungus discovery will drive crop innovation - Scienmag: Latest Science and Health News
Rice blast is the most devastating disease affecting rice, so this research has considerable implications for global food security," says one of the authors Professor Nick Talbot of The Sainsbury Laboratory. "We think this mechanism applies to other fungi where the process of infection is septin mediated. Most cereal diseases - rusts and mildews for example - involve appressoria. They are a common mechanism so from what we now know you could imagine a treatment that could be very effective," he adds. Lead author Dr Lauren Ryder from The Sainsbury Laboratory adds: "We have to work out how this turgor sensor interacts with downstream components, which is the focus of our next study. We suspect it interacts with proteins in the membrane and it senses when there is a stretch." Dr. Yasin Dagdas, now at the Gregor Mendel Institute in Vienna, Austria adds, "Besides the potential for helping global food security, this study uncovers a fascinating biological innovation that evolved during the ...

MADAGASCAR: Food insecurity tightens its hold | WFP | United Nations World Food Programme - Fighting Hunger Worldwide
In parts of Madagascars drought-prone south people have resorted to eating cattle-feed, as successive years of crop failures and the current lean season give food insecurity a firmer grip on the region. (..) The World Food Programme (WFP) in Madagascar said drought had caused the widespread failure of maize crops in the southern regions of Atsimo Andrefana, Androy and Anosy to fail. The lean season, when the previous harvest has been consumed and the new crops are not yet ready, runs from October to about March.. ...

This study analyzed the food security situation among cassava-based farming households in Akpabuyo local government area of Cross River state, Nigeria. The objectives were to describe their socio - economic characteristics, determine their food security status and its determinants and make recommendation based on the findings of the study. A multi-stage sampling procedure was used in the selection of wards, communities and cassava-based farming households. Data for the study were collected through the use of structured questionnaires administered to one hundred and three (103) households from 53 communities in the Local Government area. Descriptive statistics, food security indices and logistic regression models were used in data analysis and interpretation. The results showed that the percentages of male to female farmers differed considerably, with most households (59%) consisting of married men and women, thirty three percent (33%) of which were aged 46 years and above.

WFP alleviates food shortages in remote corner of Mauritania | WFP | United Nations World Food Programme - Fighting Hunger...
WFP is stepping up emergency distributions of food in Mauritania, including to 6,300 people suffering from serious food shortages in parts of the remote Hodh Chargui region. Following reports of several cases of severe malnutrition in the area, WFP completed a rapid assessment mission and on Tuesday began distributing 90 metric tons of food - equivalent to a complete monthly ration for 6,300 people. Distributions are taking place for the first time in the communes of Bassikounou and Fassala in the far east of Mauritania, close to the border with Mali.. "Although the Hodh Chargui region does not fall into the zones targeted by our ongoing operation in Mauritania, as soon as it became clear that food was needed, we moved to get it to these areas as quickly as possible," said Khaled Adly, WFPs Acting Regional Director for West Africa.. Since the locust invasions of 2004, WFP has closely monitored the situation in Mauritania. WFP survey teams are in the field gathering information on food security ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - A model for estimating phosphorus requirements of world food production. AU - Helin, J.. AU - Weikard, Hans-Peter. PY - 2019/11/1. Y1 - 2019/11/1. N2 - Continuing growth of world population will require food production to increase significantly in order to satisfy the needs of an increasing number of people. This study focuses on the role of phosphorus, an essential (non-substitutable) nutrient for all primary food production. A major share of the worlds phosphorus flows, both mined and recycled, is used in agriculture. This study combines the latest revised population growth predictions of United Nations with food balances, long-run income predictions, and per-country income elasticity estimates to assess the minimum phosphorus needs for food production in the 21st century. We predict countries crop and animal production, which will play a key role in the future demand for phosphorus. We demonstrate a novel method for estimating the long-run phosphorus demand based on the ...
"Factors Associated with Food Insecurity among Individuals, Aged Sixty " by Lisa M. Segler
Food insecurity is defined as a lack of consistent access to enough food for an active, healthy life. In Nevada, an estimated 80,000 individuals, aged 60 years or older, were food insecure in 2016. The primary aim of this study was to identify factors that are associated with food insecurity in older adults, aged sixty and older, in Clark County, NV. The secondary aim of this study was to identify which factors interact with each other to explain food insecurity among individuals aged sixty and older, in Clark County, NV. A secondary data analysis was conducted using data collected by Three Square Food Bank in Las Vegas, NV. Based on chi-square statistics, logistic regression models were calculated based on the levels of influence from the Social Ecological Model. Three regression models were calculated: Intrapersonal, Interpersonal, and Community. In the Intrapersonal model (χ2 = 119.839, df = 12, n = 409, p |0.001), the statistically significant variables were ambulatory disability (p = 0.043), total
Sabinet | The impact of diarrhoea in infants on the quality of life of low-income households : original research
Background: This article reports on a study that explored the impact of diarrhoea in babies on the quality of life of low-income households. Diarrhoeal diseases continue to be an important cause of illness and death worldwide. One major cause of infantile diarrhoea is the rotavirus, an airborne virus to which almost all children in both the developing and developed world will be exposed to at least once. The study, as well as the clinical trials and cost studies, was commissioned by GlaxoSmithKline to assist in the decision-making processes regarding whether and how to implement a newly developed vaccine against rotavirus through national immunisation programmes. The objective of the study was to obtain a comprehensive understanding of the impact of severe diarrhoea in babies on the quality of life of a selected group of low-income households. Methods: The study was qualitative, explorative and descriptive in nature. A recently developed quality of life (QoL) assessment instrument, based on a
El Niño is causing global food crisis, UN warns - EURACTIV.com
In a joint statement, the UNs Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) and the Famine Early Warning Systems Network said: "El Niño will have a devastating effect on southern Africas harvests and food security in 2016. The current rainfall season has so far been the driest in the last 35 years.". Britains Department for International Development (DfID) said in a briefing paper: "Even if it were to start raining today, the planting window for cereals has already closed in the southern part of the region [Africa] and is fast closing elsewhere. There has been a steep rise in market prices of imported staple goods. This is restricting access to food for the most vulnerable.". According to the World Health Organisation, the heavy rains expected from El Niño in Peru, Ecuador, Paraguay and southern Brazil could increase the spread of the Zika virus. "The Aedes aegypti mosquito breeds in standing water. We could expect more mosquito vectors which can spread Zika virus because of expanding and ...

My Munchable Musings: My Munchable Soapbox: Food and Poverty in America
Food stamps have replaced cash assistance as the number one form of welfare in the country. At present, 46 million people are enrolled in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as food stamps. The program has provided considerable relief to families who have temporarily fallen on hard times during the recession, although the impacts have largely gone unnoticed. According to a recent New York Times article (and a study carried out by the USDA), SNAP reduced the poverty rate by 8% in 2009. Approximately half of those benefiting from the program are children, and six million of those enrolled rely on food stamps as their only source of income ...
