The Guardian is reporting that pesto is being blamed for rising health issues among some of the world’s poorest nations, with the number of deaths and hospitalisations associated with the fungus being on the rise.
The report comes from a report by Oxfam that is examining the effects of globalisation on the health of populations.
Oxfam’s report found that globalisation has caused a surge in disease, and that the global food supply is not only becoming more expensive, but also less nutritious.
“While globalisation appears to be good for the environment, it is not good for people,” Oxfam said.
“Pesto has led to a rise in malnutrition in Africa and South America.
A report from the International Federation of Agricultural Federations said that global agricultural production has increased by 7 per cent between 1990 and 2020, with most of that growth coming from emerging markets. “
It is also contributing to the increasing prevalence of diarrhoea, pneumonia, and malaria in poor countries.”
A report from the International Federation of Agricultural Federations said that global agricultural production has increased by 7 per cent between 1990 and 2020, with most of that growth coming from emerging markets.
In the first half of 2018, global production rose by 6 per cent, the report found.
The IFAF said that countries are using their own crop varieties that are not grown in the EU.
It noted that in 2017, EU countries grew 7.5 per cent more food than they did in 2000.
“This is the result of more farmers switching from producing mainly crops to growing livestock, especially beef and pork,” it said.
The FAO has also said that there is a “huge need” for improved agricultural production and consumption in the developing world.
It has said that it is “urgently looking into ways to better promote and support the sustainable growth of the agricultural sector”.
“The world’s food security needs to be a priority in our priorities for the next decade, and this report provides a vital contribution to this effort,” the organisation said in a statement.
“We hope the report will stimulate the work of the global trade and trade policy community, which is currently considering its future role and potential contribution to global trade.”
It also noted that there are over one billion people living on less than $1.25 a day, and the world needs to work towards “a sustainable transition to a low-carbon, food-secure and inclusive food system”.
Oxfam also said it was concerned about the spread and “unprecedented” levels of the disease in the US.
“More than 1,400 Americans die of foodborne illnesses each day, more than three times the rate of the European Union,” it wrote.
“The rate of cases in the United States is four times the European average.”
