Philadelphia, PA, December 30, 2013 /3BL Media/ – Is obesity a socially transmitted disease?

Philadelphia, PA, December 30, 2013 /3BL Media/ – Obesity rates in the United States increased from 14.5% of the population in 1971-1974 to 35.9% of the population in 2009-2010. It’s believed that one contributing factor to expanding waistlines is the reported increase in energy intake. Research suggests that the ability to control energy intake may be affected by the speed at which we eat, and a high eating rate may impair the relationship between the sensory signals and processes that regulate how much we eat.

How Can we Inspire the Next Generation of Farmers?

Join the live discussion with Nestlé, Swisscontact and Fundación Paraguaya - 17 Dec at 10am EST / 3pm GMT
Press Release

December 16, 2013 /3BL Media/ - Years of declining investment in farmer education and extension services - as well under-investment in agriculture per se – is now affecting our ability to source quality raw materials in the quantities required to produce enough food for an increasing global population.

In many countries, farming is unattractive to young people. Few take it up as a profession. Those who do, usually do so by default and not by choice. Most young people leave the countryside and search for employment opportunities in cities.

How can we reverse these trends?
