Annotation by Joshua Lederberg:
KW:  the headline is misleading; it is not so much "food" from our
factories at issue (at current energy prices), but specific nutrients;

 The idea of using synthetic supplements for LDC nutrition is not
as bizarre as may appear -- we use an anlogous approach in providing
iron, iodine, and folic acid and other B-vitamins in various setting;
it is also common practise in poultry and some other animal husbandry.
  As of 2002 this discussion may be mitigated by the development of
genetically manipulated crops, in which biosynthesis takes the place
of ex vivo artefacts;  The same can be said about SAM52 proposal about
AID in the form of fertilizer;
