Capitalism, Democracy and Food - The lunatics are running the asylum.
We live in a world where one billion of us are overweight or obese and one billion of us are hungry or starving. Many of the over fed are also undernourished due to the poor quality of food – literally stuffed and starved. In the 1950’s the WHO picked up on an old proverb, and suggested we eat an apple a day – as it contained enough nutrients to keep us healthy. If they ran the same campaign today it would be a less catchy 2.3 apples a day to have the same micronutrient effect. Created by AcademicEarth.org
