How climate change could make our food less nutritious

Rising carbon levels in the atmosphere can make plants grow faster, but there’s another hidden consequence: they rob plants of the nutrients and vitamins we need to survive.

In a talk about global food security, epidemiologist Kristie Ebi explores the potentially massive health consequences of this growing nutrition crisis– and explores the steps we can take to ensure all people have access to safe, healthy food.

Kristie Ebi works at the centre for Health and Global Environment where she studies and develops interventions to help at risk populations prepare and deal with climate change.

This talk was presented at an official TED conference and it highlights the nutrients most affected by the rise in green house gases, the effects this could have on our health and who is most at risk.
