Crops for Health

This is a unique transdisciplinary research program with the goal to improve the disease prevention characteristics of food crops, thereby rescuing chronic disease morbidity and mortality. The focus of the program is on the major staple crops of the world’s population, but specialty crops are also investigated. The program deals with problems at the interface of agriculture and human health, and one critical step to assist with the developing of sustainable solutions to these global problems will be the Crops for Health Research Working Groups.
