It's a perverse fact of modern life: There are more starving people in the world than ever before while there are also more people overweight. Raj Patel talks about his investigation to find out how we this has occurred and what can be done to rectify it. His research took him from the colossal supermarkets of California to India's wrecked paddy-fields and Africa's bankrupt coffee farms, while along the way he ate genetically engineered soy beans and dodged flying objects in the protestor-packed streets of South Korea. His findings are a bold expose on the food industry.
