We are living an unprecedented time with a global epidemic of food-related health issues such as obesity, type 2 diabetes and food allergies that have sky-rocketed. In 2017, the indirect cost of obesity in the United States was estimated at $1.7 trillion and, according to experts, it will exceed the overall expenditures in healthcare in the country by 2020. For the first time in history, the current generation of children in America may have shorter life expectancies than their parents.
At Calyxt, we believe it is unethical NOT to use our technologies to address these issues head-on.
