We would need to monitor how this initiative would be implemented. One area that would need some caution is the use of the huge investment in the procurement of non-natural food in the form of the so-called food/dietary supplement/functional food, that is made up mostly of synthetic substances which are generally not bio-available. Unfortunately, it is not the norm to test out these items by way of clinical studies as it is done for drugs. The poor countries of the world are mostly affected by poor nutrition but surprisingly there are food crops like Sorghum which could be developed to meet the nutritional needs of these countries. Hippocrates, the father of medicine said "Let food be thy medicine, and thy medicine be food" A lot of research has been done on this plant and if the nutritional contents could be standardized it would not only supply the nutritional needs as well as provide healing for many of the diseases that have been caused by poor nutrition.
