Agriculture Telling its Story

Foodchat on Food and Health. What are the ways in which food, health, and education can be formulated to improve lives and create a future in which all children are not at risk of obesity?

The Persistence of the Primitive Food Movement From the Freakonomics Blog, "Americans are currently embracing a strange sort of primitivism. Bicycles are losing gears, runners are afoot in shoes designed to creatae a barefoot sensation (some are even running barefoot), and men are growing bushy Will Oldham-like beards. It’s all very curious and entertaining. But nowhere has our love for the supposed simplicity of the past been more evident than in food trends."

Food Cannot Be Ethical. Only People Can. A recent report, Ethical Food, attempts to address "Are ethical brand claims influencing food purchases? And if so, which claims matter most to consumers?". Unfortunately, this report is about creating a divisive environment around food, its production, and the people who work in the food and agriculture industries.
