SPECIAL REPORT: Nutrient-enriched crops target 'hidden hunger'
Mon, 06/13/2011

"Working through the agricultural system is more sustainable than, for example, (vitamin and mineral) supplements, which have an expensive delivery system, and people have to keep coming back. Instead, you can give smaller doses (through food) every day" - Jere Haas, Professor of Nutrition, Cornell University

AlertNet has put out a Special Report regarding the positive and lasting effects of bio-enriched crops across the hungriest countries.  SPECIAL REPORT: Nutrient-enriched crops target 'hidden hunger' describes the process nations are grappling with concerning the fluctuating cost of food and the solutions that seek to remedy these problems.

In the long term, we could see maybe 80 to 90 percent of food staples eaten in Africa and Asia biofortified, and we would be reaching billions (of people) - Howarth Bouis, Director of HarvestPlus
