SEGURIDAD ALIMENTARIA by Dra. Gladys M. González Martínez

This article by Dra. González (page 103) is excellent.  Although she speaks in general terms about food security, she provides a detailed analysis of the situation in Puerto Rico.  For years I have heard that we import around 85% of our food from outside the island, but I had never seen an official statement.  Dra. González provides it in this paper along with other critically important data about our agriculture and food security.
