U.N. SAYS JUNK #FOOD A HUMAN RIGHTS CONCERN

The rise of industrial food production combined with trade liberalization has allowed large corporation to flood the global market with cheap, nutrient-poor foods that force poor people to choose between economic viability and nutrition, the U.N. said Tuesday. Consequently, the U.N. says, these foods violate peoples’ rights to adequate food. The U.N. is calling on countries to go beyond ensuring people the minimum requirements needed for survival and ensure access to food that is nutritionally adequate. (Washington Post)
