“It’s the System, man!”
If you were a child of the 60s, this phrase might sound familiar. Systems sometimes abandon the humanity they were designed to serve – they become dysfunctional machines. However, no matter what period of history you were born into, the story of our modern times as well as our modern dilemmas is one that involves complex, interrelated systems. The issues involved with human nutrition and health are deeply rooted in our economic system, food system, healthcare system, and our metabolic systems, to name a few. In this section of the Nutrition Toolbox, we will help you deconstruct, understand, and even change the systems that are having significant impacts on you – your nutrition and your health.
