    there was rather a lot of vegetarian-punching in that article, and some things (like talking about food miles without acknowledging the huge energy costs of producing meat) are just plain dishonest.

    Producing staple food for export in a poor country always carries the risk of malnutrition if the replacements are not as nutritionally sound or are in short supply.  See Ireland, Potato Famine.  I have to hope Peru can handle the issue, because the popularity of quinoa isn't likely to disappear.
