Hi everybody,

I was not sure where to put this and I do hope it is not against the forum-rules...
Yesterday I saw a documentation on German TV about Maca, a sort of tuber grown in Peru which seems to have really marvellous ingredients. Because of these it is very much appreciated by foreign corporate groups which have it patented for themselves, depriving the local farmers from being "masters in their own house".
I wanted to know more about this and googling for Maca I happened to come to the German website where there are quite a lot of links to similar problems all over the world. The webmaster is looking for help from English and Spanish speaking people who would put this site into their resp. languages (for free, as it seems). IMO it is a very important issue, freedom of science and trade being of great concern to all of us. Maybe some of you will find time to have a look at those texts and translate one or more of them?
