« Are all the cows mad ? »

Lorraine CRAIG

Géographe, Royal Geographical Society

Résumé

Who can deny the significance of food ? It has a central role in our health and pleasure as well as in our economy and culture. This talk will provide a perspective on food systems within the UK, and demonstrate the rich variety of habits that are addressed within each small geographical area

How have habits changed since "mad-cow disease" ?

How has "foot-and-mouth" changed the view?

What about low carbohydrate diets ? Has this affected what food is consumed ?

What are the global issues affecting eating habits and food distribution ?
