Food Matters: You are what you eat

It is true that what we eat affects not only our health, but our planet. In the following well-written overview about how much food really does matter, several good points are made such as:
  • Be conscious of what you are eating. 
  • Make changes -- good ones -- to your diet.
  • Support your local farmers.
  • Spread the word and speak out.
  • Consider a job/career related to environmental public health.
Imagine if we as a people join together more frequently in speaking out for better food options and supporting the 5 points made above? Childhood obesity and all the ramifications that come from preventable chronic diseases related to food/lifestyle changes could be minimized and even virtually wiped out. Now that would really matter, wouldn't you say?

Check out the article here to learn more about various topics surrounding sustainable choices, local food and simply creating a healthier environment in our schools, etc....
