This chapter serves as a conclusion to the course Feeding a Hungry Planet: Agriculture, Nutrition and Sustainability. It takes people to make a change. Be an informed consumer and make nutritious, science-based decisions on what to eat. Interviews with each lecturer tells what each believes is their biggest contribution to the agricultural world. You should eat more healthily and avoid salt, sugar, and fat, but also make decision s that have a difference for the planet and human populations. Make voting decisions that take actions about mitigating climate change. Eat what poorer people grow because those are things that use relatively little resources, and be cognizant of micro toxins. Buy fair trade produce, so you pay more for your food and more of that gets back to farmers. How do we increase the productivity of commodity crops and give the farmers the direct income benefits? Limit the amount of meat and derived products agriculture of agriculture you eat and pay attention to eco-labels. Everyone is involved and has an opinion on food, and together, we can make a change.
