World Nutrition: Past Issues

Contents: November-December 2015

Journal of the World Public Health Nutrition Association
Volume 6, Number 11-12


Those who do not know history’s mistakes are condemned to repeat them

Editorial  763-766
Attitude
Standing up and taking sides
The WN editors write: We at WN support governments determined to protect their people. We applaud UN leaders who remain courageous. We work with the rapidly growing number of health professionals who are actively committed to principles of social responsibility. We affirm our solidarity with organisations and movements whose members combine and agitate for justice and equity in world, national and local affairs.

Global Nutrition Report
Brooke Aksnes, Isabela Sattamini, Maria Alvim, Sara Garduño Diaz

Development as fighting for freedom
WN team members Brooke Aksnes, Isabela Sattamini, Maria Alvim and Sara Garduño Diaz write: We have evaluated the Global Nutrition Report in the context of WN’s mission and scope. To make tangible and sustainable improvements in global nutrition, duty-bearers must work to ensure that programmes are well-functioning and effective in local contexts; negative forces are contained; and community empowerment is supported and sustained at local level. We find that the report meets these needs in some respects, but not in others.

Update  770 – 791
The Update team writes: Update now includes more substantial contributions on big issues of public health and nutrition. Here we start with news from our Big Sugar team on a report commissioned then suppressed by the UK government recommending a tax on sugar, and on the continuing fight to maintain the Mexican national tax on sugared soft drinks. Then two WN regular contributors: Flavio Valente denounces corporate takeover of food governance, and Carlos Monteiro celebrates the Brazilian meal-based food guide. We report on refusal of the US government to include environmental impact in its coming official dietary guidelines. WN regular contributor José Luis Vivero Pol in his Vision, insists that food is not a commodity but a common good.

Development. Malnutrition, Vitamin A. 792–810
Ted Greiner
Badly nourished populations need good food

WN regular contributor Ted Greiner writes: Helping poor people to eat more nourishing food, like the pumpkins being grown in Bangladesh by the farmer in the picture above,  does not require justification by proofs that this totally solves deficiencies of one nutrient for one group in the population. Justification for spending hundreds of millions of dollars in ways that distract from food-based programmes, certainly does require strong proof. Without such justification, such programmes should be phased out. Where the vitamin A capsule programme is demonstrably acting as a barrier and impeding fortification or other food-based programmes, then the phasing out process may need to be rapid.

Taxing soda and sugar

soda wars

Marion Nestle, author of Soda Politics, writes: Now is the time to build on success. Let’s advocate even more forcefully for food systems that promote consumption of foods and drinks that are healthy for people and for the planet.  This means building a movement to stop food companies from marketing junk foods to kids and using their political power to influence elections and regulations that might reduce sales of their products. It means working with other advocacy groups to reform laws governing corporations so that they can be held accountable, The success so far in the soda wars, is reason enough for gain courage to take on these challenges.

Building healthy food systems
The title of the Oxford conference of the World Public Health Nutrition Association was ‘Building healthy global food systems: A new imperative for public health’. One of its aims was to build on the progress made during the 2012 WPHNA conference in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, which produced the Rio2012 Declaration on the themes of knowledge, policy and action. This report summarises key themes of the conference and outlines key points made in the presentations.

Column  Here I am 845-854
Brooke Aksnes

WN team member Brooke Aksnes writes: This column contains three themes. First, my ideas on why urban agriculture is the answer to all our problems, Second, how democracy is turning over a new leaf in its history in 2015. Third, how to stop the current chaotic volatility of global food prices, which are causing riots and uprisings especially in Africa, as seen here above in Mozambique, These musings constitute some of my greatest passions and most recent thoughts, which are constantly in flux and development. Please read, enjoy, and get ready for debate. I am eager for feedback – send comments to wn.letters@gmail.com. Let’s start these important conversations, which can lead to shared decisions and actions!

The Keynes of all times, and other stories

WN editor Geoffrey Cannon writes: My hero in this issue is John Maynard Keynes, who a century ago gave clues to just how ominous world prospects are now. Then I ruminate on the overuse and abuse of the word ‘we’, as in ‘Yes, we can’, or ‘We need to tackle the challenge of epidemic obesity’. Who are ‘we’?  Then some shocks of recognition. In the UK an official report on diet and health has been suppressed. In the UK and Mexico militant health professionals have succeeded in pressing for a continued tax on soda (sugared soft drinks). Plus the new horror stories that have whizzed round the world, projected in the picture above, about burgers, chorizo, ham, sausages, and also beef, pork and lamb, as causes of cancer. These stories derive from a United Nations agency monograph that has not yet been published! This gets me to reminiscence about my own part in such events, played long ago.

The Big Picture. This World Now

Indonesia is in flames. 100,000 fires are now burning. Haze like this is permanent. A main reason is destruction of rainforests to plant palms for the cheap and most commonly used oil, often not identified as palm oil, contained in half of all supermarket ultra-processed products. These include breakfast cereals, chips (crisps), cookies, confectionery, margarine, ice cream, instant noodles, packaged bread, pizza crusts, frozen meals – and also, soap and cosmetics

Update  667 – 682
As from now, Update will include rather more relatively substantial contributions, on important issues of public health and nutrition that need to be identified and addressed. This issue of WN is an example. We start with two warnings, on the impact of climate disruption on water, and by Paul Ehrlich and other on the impact of current political, economic and social policies on biodiversity. We continue with a plan for US food policy by Michael Pollan and others, and a plan for global food policy by Olivier de Schutter and others. We end with Pilar Zuzueta’s vision of the century.

Agro-ecology  694 – 703
Much of the Amazon rain forest was once farmland
Charles R Clement, William Denevan, Michael Heckenberger
Andre Braga Junqueira, Eduardo Neves, Wenceslau Teixeira, William Woods
The Amazon rain forest was, before the Europeans came, as cultivated as forests anywhere else in the world. It was not ‘virgin’. The native people still living within the forest are remnants descended from highly structured societies with suitably developed agriculture and food systems. A vast number of foods including guaraná, açaí and manioc (above) have been cultivated for thousands of years. This revolutionises understanding of the nature and value of Amazonia, the imperative need to protect and strengthen its own identity, and to learn yet again that in agro-ecology is the salvation of the planet.
