Global Health

How can we create a healthier world?

A French farm worker harvests apples in a 8 hectare apple orchard at the Verger d'Epinoy near Cambrai, northern France September 3, 2014. French apple growers are facing a sharp drop in revenue this year due to Russia's restrictions on food imports from Western countries. With the European Union's second-largest apple producer Poland unable to export its usual 700,000 tonnes of the fruit per year, these are set to come and compete at cut price on EU markets. The European Commission said fruit and vegetable producers would receive aid of up to 125 million euros ($162 million) to help them cope with the impact of the ban. French Agriculture Minister called people to eat local products to avoid a slump in prices. Picture taken September 3, 2014.
