Food WatchBook - 2001
We need to protect the world we live in -- for ourselves and future generations. What is going to happen to planet Earth and the future of food and farming? This challenging new series draws attention to the most pressing environmental concerns -- and suggests positive ways to prevent further damage. Food Watch explains the issues -- from the problems of world hunger to the effect of chemical pest controls and the debate surrounding genetically modified foods. Hands-on experiments show readers how to explore the science behind the facts, while action globes suggest ways to make a difference on a daily basis. To highlight what is already being done, professionals, including an organic dairy farmer in New Zealand and a nutritionist in Ethiopia, describe how their work is improving the management of the planet. Lively text, written in clear, nontechnical language, combines with dynamic images to suggest ways to protect our planet for the future.
