    What are we eating?

    Resource Type: Serial Publication (Periodical)
    Published: 2018
    What are we eating? A simple question which opens up a labyrinth of devilishly complex issues about production and distribution, access to land, control of water, prices, health and safety, migrant labour, and much else.
    For millions of people, the answer is brutally simple: not enough to survive. UNICEF estimates that 300 million children go to bed hungry each night, and that more than 8,000 children under the age of five die of malnutrition every day. The UN's Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) estimates that 12% of the world's population is chronically malnourished.
    How is this possible in a world where there is an enormous surplus of food, where farmers are paid not to grow food?
    A short answer is that food production and distribution are driven by the need to make profits, rather than by human needs.

    Resource Type: Article
    Published: 2015
    Antibiotics have saved hundreds of millions of lives since they came into use in the 1930s, but their power is running dry thanks to their massive use in factory farming, horticulture, aquaculture and industry.
