Tweets from Leonie Joubert’s Talk on Why Cities Make Us Fat at EthicsXchange

The Hungry SeasonLeonie Joubert, author of The Hungry Season, gave a talk on why cities make us fat at the EthicsXchange, held last week at The Fugard Theatre. She spoke about how many children in South Africa start their day off eating highly refined food. Many of these children will have compromised IQs as a result of poor nourishment in their first two years of life.

Joubert also explained that, while people might not be going hungry in the cities, they may be malnourished as a result of cheap food being highly processed.
