Given the close links among our health, the foods we grow, how we grow them, and how we process and distribute them, it is surprising how little collaboration there is between medicine and agriculture. This needs to change to prevent chronic diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer; build health equity; offer nutrient-dense food to a growing population; and protect and restore the environment for the long-term health of our species.
