    Overconsumption: awareness of our bodies and what they need to function would definitely impact overconsumption. One thing we spoke about was nutrition- if every person was aware of BFP, how to calculate it as well as the science behind food we would have a much more sustainable grocer consumer industry. Meaning the businesses that sell unsustainable and unhealthy products would lose money and have less items on the shelves.  We would be able to develop more local farms, and more technologies surrounding feeding the population because funding could be used for the things people want.. which is good health.. ran out of time / not a full thought
