    First "All Africa Congress on Synthetic Pesticides, Environment, Human and Animal Health"

    Worldwide, an estimated 3.5 billion kilograms of pesticides are applied to crops each year, and that number is steadily increasing as developing nations are steadily transitioning over to chemical-based agriculture in a misguided and misinformed effort to increase yield and lower cost. According to the UN, 90% of synthetic pesticide fatalities come from developing countries and estimated costs from synthetic pesticide poisonings in sub-Saharan Africa now exceeds the total annual overseas development aid given to the African region for basic health services. By 2020, if not curbed, the… Read more

    Don't let our food abundance fool you!

    For the first time in decades, the United Nations reports world hunger is on the rise. This is in spite of all the global pledges promising “Zero Hunger” and billions of dollars invested in a “Second Green Revolution.” The world is running out of food and tragically children are in the cross-hairs. Every 3.6 seconds someone dies of starvation on earth and 75% of these individuals are children. War and conflict are accelerating world hunger and childhood deaths. The world’s population is ballooning and outstripping our capability to feed it. By 2050 the world’s population is… Read more

    Feeding the Ten-Billion-Pound Elephant in the Room

    Isolationism although espoused by some is not an intelligent nor survivable position for individuals, societies, or nations. Accelerated communication, transportation, and global trade have global interconnectedness exploding at a maddening pace. What happens in an isolated part of the world now becomes instant news and can have instant impact on our lives. Therefore, it is imperative we stay fully aware of global events as we plan our lives and as our governments set their policies. In planning for the future, a major concern should not only be “Climate Change” but also the… Read more

    “Cleaning Your Plate” Won’t Solve World Hunger

    All the attention that food loss and waste has received globally in the developed world is heartening. Major food companies, retailers, municipalities, governments, and individuals worldwide have launched programs to reduce food waste. Admirably, food pipelines have been developed to put potentially wasted food into the hands of hungry individuals in the developed world. My concern is, however, that this focus on saving food in the developed world will misguide us into thinking that we are effectively attacking world hunger. World Hunger Is On the Rise After steadily declining for over… Read more
