In fact, according to Riccardo Valentini, graduated in Physics and winner of the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007, "consuming eco" food, which needs less water to grow and less pasture to breed, it would be "the only way to preserve the Earth and feed all. " Also according to the expert, the ideal diet would be to prefer organic agriculture, which provides a lower impact on the environment and allows the soil to better absorb water and nutrients.

In fact for the food processing there are employed onerous amount of energy, thereby leading to the production of polluting substances and the exploitation of precious resources. However it’s not always possible to consume not processed foods and it is for this reason that even when you choose processed products we should prefer sustainable alternatives.
