Dr. David Suzuki says it best, “With an estimated population of nine billion people by 2050, we cannot continue to consume resources at the same rate and maintain our quality of life.” We have become an obese race, rapidly consuming even more than we physically can. This consumption is occurring at an alarming rate with no regard for the effects that our actions have not only on the health of environment but also indirectly on the health of current and future generations. Society is becoming more diseased and overweight everyday. I am considering further researching this topic through my seminar project for Urban CT. I would like to use the CT as a new lens to look at the parallel between healthy cities and healthy bodies.
