Politics and greed causes starvation not lack of food – there is enough food produced in the World to feed everyone. Yes, there are going to be issues, going forward, feeding the world’s population and research shows that organic can be a big part of the solution, providing similar and in some cases almost double the yield of intensively farmed crops. So don’t necessarily think of organic as niche market. Not least as intensive farming uses pesticides and fertilisers which need oil for production.
Michael Pollan puts it ever so much more eloquently than I ever could….and this wonderful animation brings his words to life beautifully..
We all need to eat more sustainably – a healthy diet looks the same as a sustainable diet – lots of veg, some fruit, lots of water, some complex carbohydrates, lean protein from vegetables and some from fish and meat, some healthy fats and little sugar – best in its natural form – in fruit.
