Food for Health
Food is one essential element for life, of course. Unfortunately, much of the food from the industrialized food system actually undermines health instead of supporting it. This category identifies articles that focus on health impacts of food and food choices.
Check out these resources:
- Student research describing how industrial agriculture is destroying human health.
- Healthy Food for Healthy Communities
- Sustainable Campus Dining Resources (Most of these also apply to non-campus settings.)
If food is one of your interests, we invite you to join the Food.LV email group – this group is open to facilitate discussion of food-health concerns, access to fresh food, composting, sustainable growing, fair trade, and sustainable campus dining.
For more information, go to our Food category.
