Olivier De Schutter, United Nations Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food has written an amazing article about global hunger / obesity / food policy in today’s Toronto Star.

In the article, he highlights the connections between:

  • Factory farming,
  • Political influence & lobby groups,
  • Obesity,
  • Under-nutrition / starvation,
  • Small scale farming,
  • Junk food advertising aimed at our children,
  • And the rise of global chronic disease

It’s a great read…and one that should be spread all around the internet.
