Chlorella and Spirulina, the two most powerful foods in the world, hold the keys to feeding the world. They are the most nutritionally dense foods, and have the broadest array of nutrients of any foods know. They are also incredible inexpensive to cultivate compared to the amount of nutrition they possess. I have said for many years that these foods could feed the world and they if anyone is starving and/or malnourished this would solve their problem.
Well apparently someone else has caught on to the idea and is actually solving the problem of malnutrition in children in India.
The Department of Women and Child Development has launched a dietary supplement programme for anganwadi children in Karnataka claiming that the initiatives carried out by three major corporates had yielded positive results in addressing malnutrition. Deccan Herald
Once health officials in Karnataka, India started giving spirulina to children they saw the results immediately.
According to the department’s data, there are 23,295 “severely malnutritioned” children. But, it has set aside a budget of Rs 3.6 crore for administering Spirulina to 25,000 children. Deccan Herald
[Consuming spirulina] has brought down malnutrition levels from 33 per cent to eight per cent. Following this, a decision was taken to supply Spirulina to all the districts in Karnataka. Deccan Herald
If only they’d started doing this sooner, but at least they are doing it. Spirulina and chlorella are capable of feeding the world.
