Think U.S. Agriculture Will End World Hunger? Think Again.

Environmental Working Group (EWG)

Every time we at EWG talk about the damage farming can do to drinking water, air quality, public health and quality of life, we hear: “Well, you know we have to feed the world.”

The implication is that people will go hungry if American farmers don’t go all out to increase production of crops and livestock. Before we accept this deal, we should know which “world” U.S. farmers are actually feeding, which was studied in a new report out this week.
