Virtually every growing environmental and health problem can be traced back to modern food production, including food insecurity, obesity, chronic disease, air and water pollution, global warming—and more.
That’s the conclusion drawn by Dr. Joseph Mercola in a recent article published on Mercola.com. Mercola writes:
Unfortunately, industrial farming has created a series of unsustainable situations in less than 70 years, and evidence suggests we will not make it until the end of the century if we continue along the path of degenerative food and farming.
How do we get out of this mess? By doing everything we can, as consumers, to support organic regenerative food and farming. And by insisting that our local, state and federal lawmakers drastically overhaul old food and farming policies that reward the wrong kind of agriculture, and replace them with policies that promote ethical and regenerative farming practices—or lose our votes.
