Why Health is the Key to the Future of Food and Farming

Lang, T and Rayner, G. UK. City University, London, Department of Health Management and Food Policy. 2002.



"This Report says that health is the central consideration of the nation's farming and food system. It examines the health and health inequality impact of current farming and food policy and the externalised costs of current policies and proposes a fresh direction for change. It argues that England needs a modern, reformed Farming and Food Policy which takes full account of the health of the population and the government's support for tackling health inequalities and the principles of sustainable development."
