QUALITY OF LIFE / THE FOOD STRAND
A foundational STRAND for Quality of Life and the functioning of the Socio-Enviro-Economic System

Already a billion of us go to bed hungry every night. Not because there isn't enough, but because of the deep injustice in the way the system works. (OXFAM)

THE FOOD STREAM // HEALTH AND WELLNESS
Vegetables / Meat / Fruit / Chocolate/ Processed Food / Junk Food
THE FOOD STREAM / FOOD ... YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT!
For most of history, mankind has been short of food ... but in recent years there has been enough food now for everyone, yet the distribution of food means too many remain hungry and others choose to eat foods that is addictive, lack in nutritional and bad for wellness.
There is now a huge body of knowledge within food science, but to a substantial extent food science has been used to facilitate the maximization of corporate profit and build investor wealth rather than having impact on quality of life the priority.
150 94 // 400 251 The True Cost of American Food ... San Francisco Conference Proceedings ... April 2016
The Sustainable Food Trust is an organization which has contributed in a significant way to the development of the conceptual framework for True Cost Accounting in food and farming. Its Founder and Chief Executive is Patrick Holder who writes the introduction. In the transcript of a video address given by the Prince of Wales, Prince Charles says, “It is essential that the true costs of all our activities are properly understood and reflected in the way we run our economies… I make no apology for saying that ways must be found to make sustainable food systems at least as profitable as unsustainable systems… We need new ways of accounting for the true costs and benefits of our food production systems.” 'http://truevaluemetrics.org/DBpdfs/Food/SustainableFood/Sustainable-Food-Trust-The-Cost-of-American-Food-Report-2016.pdf'

FOOD ... NUTRIENT DENSITY INFORMATION
Some foods are rich in nutrients ... others less so. The for-profit food industry has used modern food science to develop foods that are good for profit, but sometimes not so good for wellmess and not so good for the environment. This is an emerging system to 'number' the nutrient density

150 94 / 250 / 400 251 FRUIT
I grew up with the idea that 'an apple a day keeps the doctor away!' Generally speaking fruit is a 'healthy' food, tasty and good to eat. Fruit in supermarkets today tends to taste less good than it used to decades ago, though the fruit in supermarkets looks very good. Modern tasteless fruit is caused by harvesting that is done too early before the fruit has developed sweatness, but this early harvesting does mean that the shelf life is longer and the fruit can be transported further. See: https://www.choosemyplate.gov/fruit

150 94 // 400 251 VEGETABLES
Vegetables are good for you ... but they are not as appealing to children as other foods that taste better and in some cases create addiction and craving.
Besides being 'good for you', vegetables have a much lower environmental footprint than many other food groups, and especially meat.

My personal view is that meat is a wonderful food because I really like the taste ... but I am also aware that meat production has a huge impact on the environment and in excess, is not very good for my health.

164 100 // PROCESSED FOODS
Processed foods and packaged foods are a big part of what modern consumers buy. It is a very big industry. There is a massive amount of knowledge about food science, which is used to drive the performance of the processes food industry. The performance of the industry is driven in large part by the profit dimension of performance without taking into account other issues like land use, water use, pesticides and herbicides, impact on human health, etc.
164 100 // JUNK FOOD / FAST FOOD
When I was growing up in the 1940s and 1950s there was little or no fast food and rather little junk food. In Europe during and after World War II there was a limited amount of food, and many families grew their own vegetables to supplement what was available in the shops. Children who grew up later ... in the 60s, the 70s and later ... fast food and junk food became a much bigger part of the diet, and quite likely caused a decline in wellness. Causality is difficult to establish because of the many variables, but there has been an increase in the sonsumption of fast food and junk fund AND there has been an increase in diabetese, obesity and related ailments.
SWEETS, CANDIES, CHOCOLATE
Sweets, candies and chocolate should only be consumed in moderation. Sweets and candies contain a lot of sugar which has negative impact on health and the condition of teath. Chocolate ... an indulgence, but also very good, and in moderation not too bad for ones health.

THE FOOD STREAM / AGRICULTURE / FOOD PRODUCTION GO TOP
Livestock / Grains / Tree crops / Water / Land use
AGRICULTURE ARGABLY THE MOST IMPORTANT OF ALL SECTORS
For most of history, mankind has been short of food ... but in recent years there has been enough food now for everyone, yet the distribution of food means too many remain hungry and others choose to eat foods that is addictive, lack in nutritional and bad for wellness.
There has been a 'green revlution' in the past 50 years, but the high yields associated with monoculture are creating long term unintended consequences that cannot be ignored. These include deterioration of soils, excessive use of water, pesticides and herbicides which are degrading the environment in a variety of ways.
Agriculture is big business with amazing levels of production per acre ... but the unintended consequences of high yields is not taken into account with conventional accounting metrics.
150 100 CATTLE
Raising livestock to produce meat has many different impacts on the environment, most of which are not accounted for in the conventional measures used for economic performance.
Cattle are not efficient in converting vegetation into meat.
150 93 GRAIN
The United States and Canada produce a huge amount of grain. It is a very big business and highly mechanized. Farms are increasingly managed using sophisticated technology to optimize the application of fertilizer, pesticides, herbicides and irrigation water. This is important because of the scale of the industry and the damage to the environment that has resulted from past practices.
There are ongoing issues because the main goal of agriculture is to maximize profit, and the prevailing metrics do not included appropriate measures for impact of people and the vnironment.
150 113 PALM OIL
Palm oil is a major ingredient in a wide range of processed foods. As the production of processed foods has increased the demand for palm oil has increased and the need for land has also increased. Much of the new land being used for palm oil production is being obtained by large scale deforestation. There are many initiatives to limit deforestation but this has proved difficult to do for a variety of reasons.

THE PRODUCTION AND DISTRIBUTION OF FOOD
PEOPLE USE MORE LAND TO PRODUCE FOOD THAN FOR ANYTHING ELSE
Food is the big link between PEOPLE and NATURE since most food is produced using natural land and natural processes ... supplemented to a greater of lesser extent by people invented technology
Open L0700-FOOD
THE CONSUMPTION OF FOOD
NUTRITIONAL FOOD MAKES A HUGE DIFFERENCE TO WELLNESS AND QUALITY OF LIFE
Nutrients are important, and available in a wide variety of natural foods. A good food is one that enables wellness, but many processed foods have been developed so that producing companies are better served than the consumers. Fast food may be convenient, but it is not very healthy!
Open L0700-FOOD
THE WASTE OF FOOD
MILLIONS OF TONS OF GOOD FOOD ARE WASTED EVERY YEAR
Some of the waste is caused by the inefficiency of distribuition channels, some by cosmetic standards imposed by supermarkets and some by laziness on the part of consumers. The truecost of this waste is huge, but ignored in conventional economic analysis

Playing sport is of immense value to children when they are growing up, and also for younger adults. In my own case I played rugby and cricket and learned something of personal courage and teamwork, not to mention getting the value of plenty of physical exercise.

Watching sport is a different sort of recreation ... more about relaxation and mental stress reduction than getting physical exercise. Being a sports fan is a component of community building.
