Nutrition and drugs

 

Consider the discussion questions below. Please begin a discussion about nutritional regulations and how they help nutritional status of the population in the United States, (or don't help it). Your initial comments must be at least a full solid paragraph for each question (over 50 words).

I really love a good farmer's market, U-Pick, etc.  However, I always wonder if we as people are using these great resources to their fullest extent. In TABLE 1.8: Major Federally Subsidized Food Programs in the United States, you can observe several programs designed to help alleviate malnutrition/undernutrition in the United States.  After reviewing the table please consider the following topic:  How does the idea of gleaning food from agricultural fields provide a potential option for feeding the masses?  In your discussion please consider collection and distribution of food from these locations.  Would using these options for feeding the masses actually work?  How would you accomplish this?  What resources would you need to provide the “service” and could you actually do it?
