Big AG Threatens World's Food Diversity

Here is a fact I bet most of us did not know (I didn't before reading this report):

The UN Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) notes that 75% of the world’s food is generated from only 12 plants and five animal species. Out of 30,000 known edible plant species, three (rice, maize and wheat) provide almost 60% of calories and proteins.

Living systems which lose diversity usually die out. That's the path big AG has placed us on.

And TPP, TTIP, TISA, and the other "trade deals" are likely to drive us right over a cliff.

Are you happy now? No one who is hungry can be happy for very long.
