Americans in increasing numbers are choosing wellness lifestyles. From yoga to turmeric drinks, tantra to organic foods, and fasting to superfood smoothies, what was once obscure is now mainstream. In the last 30 years, the benefits of making simple nutritional and lifestyle changes have led millions to question the medical and industrial-food systems.
The millions of Starbucks “Monsanto milk” lattes intensify the industrial dairy production now overloading the atmosphere with CO2. And that excess carbon threatens all sea life—from the tiny plankton struggling to form shells in acidified waters to the whales that feed on those plankton and the algae that provide 66% of Earth’s oxygen.
Carbon sequestration land practices improve the rate at which CO2 is removed from the atmosphere and converted to organic matter in the soil. It’s time for everyone who cares about the future of food to help change the failing industrial-ag system, voting three times a day by eating organic whole foods instead of processed “food-like substances.”
