Book Description

Can we produce food for all the inhabitants of Earth and distribute it fairly? Is it possible to make the food system more sustainable to help protect the environment and save resources? What are ways to provide better nutrition that help people maintain good health over the long term? Within the great culinary traditions, is it possible to rediscover the ingredients for healthy, fair, and convivial eating?
The paradoxes of the global food system, the cultural value of food, production and consumption trends, and the effects of food production and consumption on health and the environment are some of the major themes of Eating Planet 2012, the first global report on food and nutrition by the Barilla Center for Food & Nutrition, in collaboration with the Worldwatch Institute. Analysis of these issues and discussions about potential solutions are enriched by the contributions of prestigious experts: Tony Allan, Ellen Gustafson, Michael Heasman, Hans Herren, Alex Kalache, Mario Monti, Aviva Must, Joaquín Navarro-Valls, Marion Nestle, Raj Patel, Shimon Peres, Carlo Petrini, Paul Roberts, Vandana Shiva, Ricardo Uauy.

Something must be done to fix the broken food system, and it must start today. The Barilla Center for Food & Nutrition has partnered with the Worldwatch Institute Nourishing the Planet project to bring you a comprehensive discussion on our planet's present pitiable state of food insecurity, malnutrition, childhood obesity, and general disconnection between people and their environment. Topics reach from nutrition and health to global food cultures. Well-known icons of the food world such as Vandana Shiva (Soil Not Oil, 2008) and Paul Roberts (The End of Food, 2008) contribute personalized viewpoints and professional opinions that complement the text. For anyone who seeks hope for a sustainable future of a healthy "eating planet," this book is essential.
