This is our physical world including all living things in the air, on the land and the seas, and the connected food chains, energy flows and planetary processes that drive the presence of life on Earth. Disruption to parts of this web affects all life on Earth. Human beings in this Anthropocene Age, are an integral part of this interconnected milieu of life, and we hold this balance in our hands.
We depend on our natural environment for the genes, microbiota and sunlight exchange that shapes us, and the food we consume to feed the thousands of microbial species of our microbiome. Our gut microbiome is also called our second brain. This communion provides us with the nutrients, chemicals and compounds that keeps our mental and physical condition in optimum balance.
We need the biology and chemistry of nature and our bodies to produce useable energy in the form of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) that then uses thermal, mechanical and electrical energy to power our everyday lives. Toxins, pollution, poor nutrition, disconnection from nature, bad habits and poor lifestyles will cause an imbalance and consequently, metabolic syndrome, diseases and mental illness.
