Video Interview: Connecting Food with Health

According to the NRDC and reports presented at the forum, pesticides and toxic chemicals used to grow industrial food are showing up in increasing quantities in mother’s breast milk , a leading indicator of health of our future generation.

Before pesticides reach the consumer, farm workers are exposed to them in large quantities, and excess pesticides runoff into water-sheds, polluting future water sources. That is why Dr. Maring is working on connecting small and midsize farmers with institutional purchasers. He is building a market place for farms that produce healthfully, so that people can access this good food and the farms can focus on what they do best: changing human and environmental health, one carrot, apple or tomato at a time.
