Disrupting the Western Food and Health Paradigm …. with Seaweed.
Seaweed is a $6B global crop; it is highly sustainable under the right production technology, and it is nutritionally potent. Added to our mainstream food chain, seaweed could contribute significantly to reducing chronic diseases related to western malnutrition, including obesity which now rivals starvation. This is related to correcting dysbiosis of the human gut, and our clinical studies have shown a breadth of implications for a number of human diseases. Seaweed is still regarded as a novelty by westerners. I will present the case for seaweed in contributing to our basic food intake in the west… for everyone… every day.
