STORY AT-A-GLANCE
Most growing environmental and health problems can be traced back to modern food production, including malnutrition, promotion of foodborne illnesses and drug-resistant bacterial infections, diminishing water supplies, and air, soil and water pollution
The answer to all of these problems hinges on the widespread implementation of regenerative agriculture and biodynamic farming
Reasons to support regenerative agriculture include the fact that it promotes optimal nutrition and health, rebuilds topsoil, protects water sources and minimizes irrigation, prevents environmental pollution and restores damaged ecosystems
Food from animals raised on regenerative farms also minimize the risks of foodborne illnesses and drug-resistant diseases
Certifications to look for, denoting the highest quality foods grown according to regenerative principles, include Demeter (biodynamic certification) and the American Grassfed Association (AGA) certification
