Bill Gates: Its the Protein Stupid
For reference Google: bill gates why hunger still exists in africa
Distillers high protein food grade co-products (ddg) used as food supplements can globally defeat protein malnutrition or the root cause of what is mistakenly called 'starvation'. Bill Gates recognizes starvation rarely exists today and the real problem is 'stunting' both physically and mentally (IQ) that is caused by malnutrition. Globally, more definitively referred to as Protein Energy Malnutrition -PEM.
Quoting Bill Gates: "Today the issue isn't quantity of food as much as it is quality----whether kids are getting enough protein and other nutrients to fully develop". One in four children globally is malnourished or stunted both physically and mentally(IQ). Gates suggests the best way to address this challenge is 'fortifying' food staples already in the diet with dietary essentials including proteins. Three fourths of malnourished 'stunted' children are in Africa. for reference Google: bill gates why hunger still exists in africa
Importantly our $60 billion food processing or 'functional' food industry, South Dakota State University and other research agree with the Bill Gates assessment. And they also agree that food grade ddgs are an almost uniquely fungible, nearly optimal, protein rich, highly digestible food supplemental ingredient: A supplemental food ingredient that makes nearly all native food staples, processed or functional foods far more nutritious and healthier. Functional foods are foods that have a potentially positive effect on health beyond basic nutrition. (click on read more for references)
Obviously nearly all the ethanol production food for fuel hysterics are far too simplistic, uninformed and have it dead wrong. Unfortunately- for especially children in poorer nations-these uninformed hysterics crush corn ethanol co-product's massive potential to globally 'fortify' existing food staples with protein rich food grade ddgs:
Lets get past oil industry propaganda: We must recognize that bushels of corn used to produce ethanol and protein rich ddg food supplements can be far more effective combating especially poverty's hunger and malnutrition than other uses of those same bushels .
Most importantly we all must recognize that assuring poverty stricken populations have nutritionally sufficient diets is the most humanitarian and effective tool for ending poverty or the root cause of hunger, malnutrition, energy and IQ deficiencies. With the tools nutritionally sufficient diets offer, poverty stricken populations are more likely to rise out of the depths of despair by being more energetic and mentally capable(higher IQ) to learn and take advantage of or create their own educational opportunities:
"Corn Ethanol's Health and Wellness Win,Win"
1.Corn ethanol production provides a massive resource to produce fungible, food grade distillers' grain supplements that will significantly increase production and availability of protein rich, lower cost, healthier, more nutritious foods and sequester carbon.
2. "Aromatics or benzene, toluene, xylene, in gasoline are the new lead," says the Environmental and Energy Study Institute's Carol Werner. Like lead octane's emissions, benzene and benzene based aromatic octane tailpipe emissions poison our children, environment, increase heart disease, cause cancers, birth defects etc costing our economy $billions annually. Contrary to oil's propaganda- Our ongoing, national blender pump demonstration assures E30 can be safely used in all autos. E30 can replace this aromatic octane and reduce its poisonous emissions, that prey especially on our smallest children, 50-80%
