When I first saw this item on the BBC website I thought (rather naively) that it might be because we are finally tackling the problem of world hunger.

Silly me. There are still 800 million undernourished people in this world. The big difference is that the rest of us just eat and eat and eat... How insulting, eh?

Isn't this staggering? It's so hard to get my head around, and just plain sad, sad, sad.
