5 Issues Aqua-Yield Combats in the Quest for Healthier Food
By Peter Dalsyme
Why are Americans getting heavier, experiencing more chronic and life-threatening diseases, and ultimately becoming unhealthier than generations past when there seems to be such a focus on “healthy” foods? The surge of diseases including cardiovascular disease, diabetes and numerous forms of cancers have been increasing since the 1950s, right on the tail-end of the Industrial Revolution which made sedentary lifestyles the norm.

Climate change has led to more unhealthy crops, which means less quality volume of crop yields. Aqua-Yield balances the negative effects of climate change by increasing crop production via nanotechnology.
