A kind blogger has sent me information on how to upgrade the nutrition of the starving African people.
Chicago: The simple way to feed thousands starving in Africa? Peanut Butter.
In a US study, nearly 3000 malnourished chidren were treated with an enriched peanut butter mixture. Of those, 89 per cent of the severely malnourished children and 85 per cent of the moderately malnourished children recovered.
The recovery rate for given standard therapies is less than 50 per cent.
"The peanut butter feeding has been a Quantum leap in feeding malnourished children in Africa" Dr Mark Manary said.
Vest say's without researching, I recall the British Govt's Failure of the East African groundnut scheme in the fifties, when equal to a $125,000000 was poured into an ill fated scheme to provide food and vegetable oil for Africans and British people. Of course that figure in todays terms would be more like $12,500,000,000.
The tumultous task was abandoned by the Brit Govt and the United Africa Co. Land and root clearing in virgin bush land, Killer Bees and the Tsetse Fly put the boot in too.
If you require more info, Google: The groundnut scheme.
