Video – The Republic Of Hunger: every third malnourished child in the world is from India

In Under-nutrition on August 16, 2012 at 6:53 am

From AlJazeera web site:

“More than 40 per cent of India’s 61 million children are malnourished, prompting the prime minister to declare the problem a “national shame”.

“A recent report reveals that levels are twice that of sub-Saharan Africa, making every third malnourished child in the world an Indian.

“India has one of the fastest-growing economies in the world and runs one of the largest child feeding programmes.

“But critics say only a fraction of aid reaches the needy.”

The Ethics of What We Eat

In Over-nutrition on August 6, 2012 at 11:56 am

from the web site Keen Talks, Prof Peter Singer, expert in Bio-ethics, talks academically about the ethics behind what we choose to eat.

“The Ethics of What We Eat explores the impact our food choices have on humans, animals, and the environment. Recognizing that not all of us will become vegetarians, Singer offers ways to make healthful, humane food choices. As they point out: You can be ethical without being fanatical.

“Huge retailers wield enormous power over prices and compel those far up the chain of food production and distribution to make unhelpful decisions. Peter also examines the ethical pros and cons of eating meat in any form.

“Urban dwellers far removed from the source of the foods they eat will find Singer’s descriptions of food production more disturbing and violent than the quiet, attractive, plastic-wrapped displays in the local supermarket’s pristine meat case.”
