After air to breathe, our food is the most important factor to
sustain life. Food is not only a matter of survival but should also be a source of joy and
happiness. In the past, our food resulted from a harmonious relationship with nature.
This has changed dramatically under the influence of strong economic forces. Despite how it may appear, much of the food consumed today is no longer sustaining life; on the contrary, it is contributing to the most massive destruction of life in history.
