World Food Day

In this Exceptional Changing World, was celebrated yesterday the World Food Day.
I hope (the program) when they talk about new technologies do not intend to introduce more GMO!
We need a more sustainable agriculture more closely linked to the production of organic food / organic, with zero impact on nature. We also need more education and promotion of vegetarianism as a way to effectively produce enough food for the world's population that grows more and more. Livestock production is completely unsustainable and unnecessary. To change eating habits is also needed more information and toabout real nutritional foods that  truly promote health and wellness.
In relation to vegetarianism, let us not be deceived by the food industry that promotes foods like soy as an alternative to meat. There are in fact much better nutritious food and and living foods could  change radically the world !!!

Food prices - from crisis to stability

Price swings, upswings in particular, represent a major threat to food security in developing countries. Hardest-hit are the poor. According to the World Bank, in 2010-2011 rising food costs pushed nearly 70 million people into extreme poverty.

“FOOD PRICES – FROM CRISIS TO STABILITY” has been chosen as this year’s World Food Day theme to shed some light on this trend and what can be done to mitigate its impact on the most vulnerable.

On World Food Day 2011, let us look seriously at what causes swings in food prices, and do what needs to be done to reduce their impact on the weakest members of global society.
