Partnership for Prevention, UCLA Health Impact Assessment Project

An HIA that focused on how the Farm Security and Rural Investment Act of 2002 (the 2002 Farm Bill) might affect health. The HIA explored health impacts on dietary consumption, food safety, rural income and quality of life, air pollution, and environmental degradation. The HIA found no clear relationship between changes in farm subsidy policy and consumption patterns, and that the effects on air quality of increased ethanol production due to the 2002 Farm Bill are uncertain.
