The Global Food Crisis has an impact on the material, social, and physical environment of our health. The material environment this issue has on our health is due to the products used to obtain the food. The social environment this issue has on our health is due to selfishness of countries not giving citizens the appropriate amount of food needed. The physical environment this issue has on our health is due to the resources being taken by deforestation to the Amazon rainforest. The health investigation for food is the dilemma happening around the world
In The Global Food Crisis the reading talks about how the prices for food is increasing over the past few years; FAO and Ghosh, J talk about how change can make it increase. In The Right to Food Campaign in India the reading talks about how there are petitions in India to help with the malnutrition, hunger and other food-related issues that have occurred; Aggarwal, A. and H. Mander talk about how it was finally passed. In Nutrition and Food Sovereignty the reading talks about certain countries such as India that have illnesses and diseases due to the lack of food; UNICEF talks more about the poor diet they have. In class, we watched the YouTube video BBC Documentary Future of Food Part 1: India; since it has millions of mouths to feed India is constantly struggling to have enough food.
The response question was; About 60% of processed foods sold in Canada contain genetically modified (GMO) ingredients, and are not labelled as GMO foods. I believe that is true because my family is very pro-non-GMO foods and all we buy is foods with labels that say it is not GMO; most products do not display they are GMO. This theme corresponds on what we talked about in class since we discussed about traditional diets and if we would cut out any animals from our diets. Hence the health investigation of the Global Food Crisis and how to help make it better.
The theme that was chosen is food. The method that was chosen to explain the theme is narrative analysis. This narrative analysis is going to be written and from the point of the interviewee. It is going to be short and told the way of one’s life story. The data obtained is the interview. The data collection procedure followed was by interviewing a person that correlates to the health system along with having access to food in Toronto. First step that must be done is to schedule an interview with a person whom I believe relates to the topic of the Global Food Crisis. The second step is to find the proper questions to ask the interviewee. Once these steps are done you can move onto the third step which is to have the interview. The fourth step is to collect the answers from the interview. The fifth and final step is to turn those answers from the interview into data. Now that is how the data procedure follows.
The person interviewed is a cancer surviving patient and a mother of two. The topic of interview is about how GMO (genetically modified ingredients) have impacted her life. The interviewee has started to learn about GMO foods a couple of years ago. She has always tried to buy organic and “clean” foods for her kids. She thought that if she ate really healthy and all she bought was non-GMO foods no diseases or illnesses would occur to her or her family. Obviously, that was false. February 2016, she got diagnosed with uterine cancer. No matter how much she spent on healthy food (which was a lot), no matter how much the packages said non-GMO or organic or gluten free she still got sick. Obviously, there are many causes to cancer such as genetics, and other causes. No matter how healthy you eat and how hard you try to stay healthy; there are always ways for you to get sick or get an illness or disease. Fortunately, she was able to have surgery and take her uterus out and is cancer free as of now. She still is eating healthy and buying the ever so expensive labelled foods with organic, gluten free, and non-GMO. This proves to show you that we need to change the way of our foods because there is evidence of people getting sick from it.
In the first paragraph, it talks about how in the first reading the prices of food have dramatically increases. This relates to the findings from the data but in the interview, it concludes that the interviewee spends a lot of money on food. But, she spends more money than usual due to the fact that she always buys organic and non-GMO foods. The first paragraph mentions how India has too many people to feed and their diets are super poor. This relates to the data because the food in Canada is all processed and genetically modified so that makes people have poor diets and eating habits. It connects to it because no matter how hard both the mother and people in India try they can never get the best food and not get any illnesses or get sick. The findings are that no matter how hard you work to get the best food for you, it is never truly “healthy” enough.
The Global Food Crisis is a big dilemma and it is going to keep getting bigger. Not unless we do something to stop or help slow down the process of world hunger along with many food problems. The OECD website talks about the similar things in the readings, that the food prices going up does not help at all. They say that the government and the WTO are responsible and are the dominant narratives for each problem. We must all work together to end world hunger along with the increase of food prices. In the findings, I can analyze that food is a big impact of our Global Health. We can build on this by making more people aware of the situation. This can help us get more people involved and have numbers as our strength to fight for our food rights all around the world. The future should be a place where less people are dying from malnutrition and with labels that show GMO foods. We must try to be the best that we can be because food is a part of our everyday lives and we need to improve it for our future kids and way of living.
