A sick planet
The way we intensely grow and use only a handful of crops severely harms our planet’s ecological system
The food ecosystem and related industry infrastructure is concentrated on 12 crops and 5 animals – which comprise of 75% of all food consumed; even though ~300,000 plants are fit for consumption.
This has created a paradoxical situation where the world is producing and consuming more food, but since most of the food we eat today is calorie-rich and nutrient-poor, we are hungrier than ever.
To cope with demand, we destroy the land feeding us, converting one football field of forest per second into agricultural land. Humanity is confronted with what NamZ calls the Nutritional Paradox – where an estimated 7 out of 10 people are nutritionally challenged, hungry or overweight, and the planet pays the price.
