Human bodies developed over thousands of years, as a result of the food which was available in the environment. If we eat too much modern food, such as processed and takeaway foods, then our health will suffer. Likewise, if we pollute the water, the air and the soil in which we grow our foods then our food will not be as good for us.
You can help through the foods you buy. Understanding the foods you buy and the foods you consume gives you the ability to make sensible decisions, that can also help protect the environment.
