Abstract

Milk is considered as a complete diet for an infant and contains essential nutrients for the development of young mammals. The substances in milk provide energy and antibodies that help protect against infection. Most farmers are paid for the quality and composition of their milk. Whole milk, once approved for use, is pumped into storage silos where it undergoes pasteurization, homogenization, separation, and further processing. Milk is a highly perishable commodity because it is an excellent medium for the growth of microorganisms - particularly bacterial pathogens - that can cause spoilage as well as diseases in consumers. Milk processing allows the preservation of milk for days, weeks, or months and helps to reduce food-borne illness.

Abstract

Every day in Mumbai 5,000 dabbawalas (literally translated as "those who carry boxes") distribute a staggering 200,000 home-cooked lunchboxes to the city’s workers and students. Giving employment and status to thousands of largely illiterate villagers from Mumbai's hinterland, this co-operative has been in operation since the late nineteenth century. It provides one of the most efficient delivery networks in the world: only one lunch in six million goes astray. Feeding the City is an ethnographic study of the fascinating inner workings of Mumbai's dabbawalas. Cultural anthropologist Sara Roncaglia explains how they cater to the various dietary requirements of a diverse and increasingly global city, where the preparation and consumption of food is pervaded with religious and cultural significance. Developing the idea of "gastrosemantics" – a language with which to discuss the broader implications of cooking and eating – Roncaglia's study helps us to rethink our relationship to food at a local and global level. The publication of this book is financed by the generous support of interested readers and organisations, who made donations using the crowd-funding website unglue.it

Abstract

[cat] L’Observatori de Bioètica i Dret (OBD) inicia amb aquest document sobre les qüestions ètiques, juridiques i polítiques a l’entorn de la informació alimentària una nova línia de documents que tracten les implicacions ètiques, jurídiques i socials dels temes alimentaris, per la importància creixent que tenen i per la seva relació amb la bioètica i els drets humans. La finalitat és incidir en les polítiques públiques i en el debat social informat sobre els reptes bioètics que plantegen el sistema alimentari actual i la seva evolució; atenent, en particular, al paper que la innovació i les tecnologies de la informació tindran en la seguretat, qualitat i sostenibilitat efectives del sistema, i en especial pel que fa a la comunicació i la percepció dels riscos per part dels ciutadans. El Grup d’Opinió de l’Observatori de Bioètica i Dret es va constituir el 1996 sota la direcció de la Dra. María Casado i té entre els seus objectius incidir en el diàleg entre la universitat i la societat mitjançant la transmissió del coneixement cientificotècnic i els arguments necessaris per participar en un debat social informat. Amb la publicació d’aquest document sobre informació alimentària ja són vint-i-cinc els documents que han tractat temes d’actualitat sobre els quals no existeix una opinió unànime, ni en la societat ni en les diferents comunitats científiques implicades. Això ha requerit identificar els problemes, contrastar els arguments i proposar recomanacions de consens. En aquest document, centrat en les qüestions bioètiques que tenen a veure amb la informació alimentària, el Grup d’Opinió vol posar de manifest la desconnexió existent entre l’actual política d’informació alimentària, basada en l’etiquetatge i la difusió indiscriminada d’informació alimentària que suporta el consumidor, així com les conseqüències que aquesta situació té sobre les eleccions alimentàries individuals, la salut pública i la perpetuació de pràctiques productives i patrons de consum ambientalment i socialment insostenibles.[spa] El Observatorio de Bioética y Derecho (OBD), con este documento sobre las cuestiones éticas y jurídico-políticas relacionadas con la información alimentaria, inicia una nueva línea de documentos acerca de las implicaciones éticas, jurídicas y sociales de los temas alimentarios, dada su importancia creciente y su relación con la bioética y los derechos humanos. La finalidad es incidir en las políticas públicas y en el debate social informado sobre los retos bioéticos que plantea el sistema alimentario actual y su evolución, atendiendo, en particular, al papel que van a jugar la innovación y las tecnologías de la información en la seguridad, la calidad y la sostenibilidad efectiva del sistema, y especialmente a la comunicación y percepción de los riesgos por parte de los ciudadanos. El Grupo de Opinión del OBD que ha elaborado este documento se constituyó en 1996 bajo la dirección de la Dra. María Casado. Entre sus objetivos se encuentra incidir en el diálogo entre la universidad y la sociedad mediante la transmisión del conocimiento científico-técnico y los argumentos necesarios para participar en un debate social informado. Con la publicación de este documento sobre información alimentaria, se han elaborado ya veinticinco documentos relacionados con temas de actualidad y sobre los que no existe una opinión unánime ni en la sociedad ni en las diversas comunidades científicas implicadas, hecho que ha requerido identificar los problemas, contrastar los argumentos y proponer recomendaciones de consenso. En este documento, centrado en las cuestiones bioéticas relativas a la información alimentaria, se quiere poner de manifiesto la desconexión que existe entre la actual política de información alimentaria basada en el etiquetado y la difusión indiscriminada de información alimentaria que soporta el consumidor, así como las consecuencias que esta situación tiene en las elecciones alimentarias individuales, la salud pública y la perpetuación de prácticas productivas y patrones de consumo ambiental y socialmente insostenibles.[eng] With this document on food information: ethical, legal and policy issues, the Bioethics and Law Observatory (OBD) initiates a new line of publications on the ethical, legal and social implications of food-related issues, given their increasing importance and their relationship to bioethics and human rights. The aim of this work is to influence public policy and inform social debate on the bioethical challenges posed by the current food system and its evolution. In particular, the document takes into account the role that innovation and information technologies will play in the safety, quality and sustainability of the system. It addresses specifically communication-related issues and public perception of risks associated with foods. The “Opinion Group” of the OBD that has prepared this document was constituted in 1996 under the leadership of Dr. María Casado. Among its objectives is to influence the dialogue between the university and society through the transference of scientific-technical knowledge and the analysis of arguments needed to participate in informed social debate. With the publication of this document on food information, twenty-five documents have now been published concerning current issues on which no agreed upon consensus in society or in the various scientific communities involved exists. This has required identifying problems, comparing perspectives and proposing consensus-based recommendations. This document focuses on bioethical issues related to food information and highlights the disconnect between current food information policy based on labelling and the indiscriminate dissemination of food information available to the consumer through different channels. It also identifies the consequences of this disconnect on individual food choices, public health and the perpetuation of environmentally and socially unsustainable production practices and patterns of consumption.

Abstract

In the mid-1990s a joint research project was established between CASER (Bogor), CIES (Adelaide), CSIS ( Jakarta) and RSPAS (at ANU, Canberra) to examine interactions between agriculture, trade and the environment in Indonesia. Funded by the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR Project No. 9449), the specific objective of the project was to assess the production, consumption, trade, income distributional, regional, environmental, and welfare eff ects in Indonesia of structural and policy changes at home and abroad. Particular attention was to be paid to those structural and policy changes that could aff ect Indonesia’s agricultural sector over the next 5-10 years.

The implications of national and global economic growth, of regional and multilateral trade liberalisation initiatives, and of Indonesia’s ongoing unilateral policy reforms were the initial focus of the study. However, with the onslaught of the financial crisis that began in the latter part of 1997, the project leaders added that issue to the research agenda.

Abstract

Eating Disorders have traditionally been considered apart from public health concerns about increasing obesity. It is evident that these problems are, however, related in important ways. Comorbid obesity and eating disorder is increasing at a faster rate than either obesity or eating disorders alone and one in five people with obesity also presents with an Eating Disorder, commonly but not limited to Binge Eating Disorder. New disorders have emerged such as normal weight or Atypical Anorexia Nervosa. However research and practice too often occurs in parallel with a failure to understand the weight disorder spectrum and consequences of co-morbidity that then contributes to poorer outcomes for people living with a larger size and an Eating Disorder. Urgently needed are trials that will inform more effective assessment, treatment and care where body size and eating disorder symptoms are both key to the research question.
