News- Research shows loss of pollinators increases risk of malnutrition and disease

No scientific studies had been done to actually claim how much pollinators affect our health. Well a study has been done by the University of Vermont and Harvard University that connected what people eat in developing countries to the pollination requirements for the crops that provide food for them. A big take home from this article is that pollination really affects the health of humans, really with talking about vitamin A deficiencies. Scientists around the world have noticed a bog decline in many pollinators and fearing the decline in the world’s food supply. The new research showed that in countries like Mozambique, women and children are malnourished and the decline of pollinators could push others over the edge to malnutrition as well.
