  • About 170 million food producers are child laborers, which speaks to the poverty and mistreatment subsidizing low food prices.
  • Farming has the highest rate of bankruptcy and suicide of any occupation.
  • Agriculture accounts for half the world's toll of workplace deaths, with 175,000 lives a year sacrificed to improper equipment management and abuse of farm chemicals.
