CO2 rises could fuel obesity as plants “carb-load”. Just Like The Decrease Seen In Pollen Quality, OUR Food Will Carb Up, and Protein Down as CO2 Increases.
‘It’s like sprinkling every bite you take with starch and sugar,’ said Irakli Loladze, an associate professor at Bryan College of Health Sciences and report co-author.
Nutritional quality of food will plummet as carbon emissions rise, with every bite delivering less protein, fewer micronutrients and more sugars, according to a report released this week.
In a world where CO2 levels are almost twice those of today, every serving of bread, pasta, fruits and vegetables will deliver less micronutrients – calcium, magnesium, zinc and the like.
Protein levels will also fall, but carbohydrate content will rise – and the increase can be substantial.
