Why do we deal with food?
The current model of cultivation and breeding is too expensive both:
for people – poor quality, highly processed food causes cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and cancer,
for the Earth – excessive breeding, monocultures, burning forests for cultivation and the use of chemicals intensify global warming, poison, sterilize the soil and are simply unprofitable.
