The popularity of a South American grain in countries like the U.S. is causing major hardships for people living in a praticular region where it is produced. The appetite for quinoa has pushed up prices so high that poorer people in Peru and Bolivia, for whom it was once a nourishing staple food, can no longer afford to eat it. Asparagus, soya, carob, chickpeas and tofu also having very detrimental impacts on the poor and the environment. The closer the production of food you eat to your door the better for you and the rest of the world.
