AUDIO: MSU Researcher Examines Health Impact of Changing African Diets

December 1, 2014 - Author: David Tschirley

Dr. David Tschirley thinks about diets all the time, but not for himself. He’s with the Food Security Group in MSU‘s Department of Agricultural, Food and Resource Economics. They’re studying how the diets of people in Africa are changing dramatically as the continent becomes more urbanized.

As Africans move to cities, they are getting more of their calories from processed, packaged foods. Current State talks with Dr. Tschirley about his recent research trip to Mozambique.

Listen to the story.
