Since the global financial crisis of 2008 and its associated food crisis that sent another 200 million people into malnutrition, there has been a massive grab for land by large corporations around the world. Worst hit has been Africa, where food security is already non-existent for many people. Governments, including the Australian government, welcome this “investment” in agriculture, some bizarrely claiming that food security will be increased.

About 69 percent of US adults track at least one health indicator, according to a national survey called Tracking for Health, conducted by Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project. About 60 percent of US adults track weight, diet, or an exercise routine, while 33 percent track another health indicator like blood pressure, sleep patterns or headaches. Some 12 percent of adults track health indicators for a loved one.
Susannah Fox, an associate director of the Pew Internet Project, told MobiHealthNews that this survey was the first broad national survey to look at health data tracking and as such her team didn’t know what to expect. They made the decision to ask all adults about health tracking — not just Internet users — in part because the 65+ population is (as a group) more likely to not be online but also more likely to have (at least one) chronic condition that requires some level of tracking.
“Seven in ten American adults are tracking health data, which sounds like a huge number until we follow up with the “gotcha” question of ‘How are you tracking?’” Fox explained to MobiHealthNews. “It turns out that half of trackers say they are keeping track of progress just in their heads. They don’t write it down, they don’t use a device, they don’t keep a spreadsheet. Half are just tracking in their heads. One in three say they are tracking on paper, like in a notebook or journal. One in five say they are using some form of technology, whether a medical device like a glucometer, or a website or a spreadsheet — any kind of technology.”
A new report from the Pew Internet and American Life Project indicates that 7 in 10 American adults tracks a health indicator like weight, diet, exercise or a symptom. But half say they track “in their heads” and about a fifth use technology.
