Agriculture as we know it, is an innovation that emerged some 10 000 years ago as an interaction between (1) a ‘recent’ mental ability to use imagery to meld abstractions into new concepts, and (2) a shift in climate – from Pleistocene to Holocene. After World War II, demand for food triggered the human mind to create new paradigms for farming. With the horrible technologies used during the war, production-maximization using pesticides became the norm for conventional farming, which changed conceptually: from naturalistic to ‘glyphosatic’. Parallel to that, because of the spread of Cardio-Vascular Disease and Metabolic Syndromes in the US, dietary research became emergent. In the US, a research team led by Ancel Keys performed epidemiology on an international scale on the Diet-heart hypothesis. In England, John Yudkin performed experimental studies. Keys conclusions led to warning the public about saturated fat, cholesterol, and read meat, whereas the conclusion from Yudkins experimental research was to warn the public about sugar. Modern research show an association between glyphosate and cancer, as well as between sugar and welfare diseases. Besides creativity, the human mind is also ‘gifted’ with the ability to fall victim of mental fallacies – the inability to handle probabilities, representativeness, reliability, validity, disjunctive reasoning, to draw correct inferences How should we go about to find future paradigms for agriculture, harmonizes with human health, ecological aspect as well as the climate?
