Outside the 20 Foods We Eat
“There are 250,000 known plant species in the world, but only 20 of them provide 90% of our food.”

I was told my Josef of the Eden Foundation in Sahara, Desert of the country of Niger, West Africa that 20 species of plants provide 90 percent of the planets food. Whenever, I walk into a food market, I am now haunted by his words, and of course I actively look around for the non-twenty foods.



Easy to find some interesting foods in Thailand, of course I do not know their names, and even if I learn their Thailand names, how do I get that name translated into English.



Many type of strange and unusual vegetables and fruits.



Well, another one, who knows what they are?

I guess there are 250,000 know species of plants on the Earth, even more rare to me are the number of honest and good NGO Non Governmental Organization that may be doing good work. As best I can determine, the Eden Foundation is doing good work trying to help stop malnutrition near the Sahara Desert of Niger, West Africa.

Niger now ranks are the lowest developed country on the planet according to the Human Development Index.

A very rare specie, an NGO that is doing something to help the the world.
