WNYC's radio program The Takeaway interviews Lester Brown on food issues in 'Food: Selling Like Hotcakes...and Starting Wars.'
"It's no secret that with a growing population and a shrinking place to put us all, many are anticipating a global food crisis in the near future — one that brings the scarcity of sustenance already present in poverty-stricken nations to all nations.
