Investments in agriculture are the best weapons

against hunger and poverty, and they have made life better

for billions of people. Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

We have often talked about the future state of human societies: I, in turn, want to imagine

them as they will be in the 2000 s. At that time there will no longer be any agriculture,

grazing or ploughing in the world: the problem of existence through soil cultivation will have been eliminated by chemistry! Everyone will

take with them to eat their small nitrogen tablet, their small clod of fat, their small piece of starch

or sugar, their small bottle of aromatic spices, adapted to their personal taste.

Marcelin Berthelot French chemist and politician (1827-1907)

Let food be thy medicine, and medicine be thy food.
