1.2 Billion People Live in Water Stress & Drought Threatens Our Food Supply
Your brain and heart are 73% water, your lungs are ~83% water, your skin is 64% water, and your muscles and kidneys are 79% water. Even your bones are 31% water.
Yet 1.2 billion people live under water stress on the planet – and have you noticed that you’re paying more for produce? It’s the economic impact of the severe drought threatening our food supply.
