Sustainable Food Production and Diet (Paperback)
(This is a special order book which cannot be returned.)
Modern food systems cause extensive chronic disease, environmental degradation, global hunger, animal cruelty, and severe pandemic risks. Switching to whole plant food diets usually is the single most powerful action people can take to address these problems. It extends lives, improves health, reduces weight, protects the environment, and helps to relieve world hunger, reduce animal cruelty, and lower pandemic risks. Using practical, easy-to-understand language, this book illuminates how to transform the food sector, overcome food addiction, and adopt healthier diets and lifestyles.
Food production and diet are among the most critical issues in human society. Flawed ideas and systems discussed throughout this book drive major problems in the food area. For example, the failure to think systemically causes many people to focus on the benefits of our food production systems without seeing the vast negative environmental and human health impacts. The inappropriate business influence of government frequently prevents the government from protecting public health and the environment in the food area. And the systemically-mandated requirement to place shareholder returns before all else drives major environmental and human health problems related to food.
