Food: What do we eat? Where does it come from? How do we grow it?

Mark Robson (Plant Biology; Faculty Director, Byrne Seminars)

This five-week seminar will discuss what we eat and the origin of foods and how we grow and prepare them.  We will look at the two ends of the food supply, the one billion people who suffer from lack of calories and food insecurity and the one billion people who are now clinically obese and suffer from a series of non-communicable diseases.  We will talk about how food is grown, shipped, and marketed.  We will discuss personal choices and better eating.
