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.
