Flies and fungi: Climate change could make food less safe, experts warn

A schoolboy eats a plate of food provided by the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) at the New Hope Kibera Bible Baptist Church Primary School in Nairobi's Kibera slum, June 2, 2009. The WFP in conjunction with the Kenyan government provides meals for some 1.2 million children in the country's arid regions and impoverished slums, which are some of the largest in the world. Rising food prices have created a growing need for food assistance to Kenya's poor. REUTERS/Finbarr O'Reilly (KENYA SOCIETY FOOD) - GM1E5621TQ201
