All you need to know about food and contamination
How far your food travels has serious consequences to the planet
•The food freight is responsible for 33% of the increase in all the types of goods transportation.
Let's Compare two vegetables (quality and miles of transportation)
-They come in a simple paper bag and travelled just 6 miles from the farm where they were picked just yesterday.
-They have been cleaned and they have never been sprayed with any chemicals (some of the chemicals used in the vegetables can be harmful to the human body).
•The second one was bought in the Supermarket: A packet of Beans
-They've been packed in a plastic bag and travelled 4333 miles from Kenya (country in the east of africa).
-The beans were sprayed with chemicals to stop them going brown on the journey.
