Unscramble the Blue Letters

The third story does not bring very good news. From the isarduntil Revolution until now, we have been forced into a lifestyle that prompts us to consume products we don't really need. Products that are also cut off from the rational use of our integiderns and environment — but that mkrinteag campaigns have led us to believe we couldn't happily live without them. Today, for example, this has culminated in more people dnyig due to obesity than due to hunger. In developed cities, more people die by suicide than by cirme. In the case of Peru, despite a growing economy, there's malnutrition and anemia in places that export their own food, while the Amazon and our seas are being destroyed and osheveirfd. Here is where cooking can help us again — not just in Peru, but all over the world. How? By placing cooking at the heart of our homes, at the ctneer of everything, with information and education. Because with information and education, we can make the right dsinieocs about what to cook and what to eat so we can find a new bnclaae, in which we can all live in harmony. A new harmony between health and enjoyment, between small producers and the big industries, between the laocl cluurte and the environment, between local products and uiarsnvel products. That's precisely the reason why we have to place cnoikog at the heart of our homes. Because if we take this message to every home, if cooking becomes iantormpt again in each home, the effects in the market and in many other activities would be massive and powerful.

Original Text

The third story does not bring very good news. From the Industrial Revolution until now, we have been forced into a lifestyle that prompts us to consume products we don't really need. Products that are also cut off from the rational use of our ingredients and environment — but that marketing campaigns have led us to believe we couldn't happily live without them. Today, for example, this has culminated in more people dying due to obesity than due to hunger. In developed cities, more people die by suicide than by crime. In the case of Peru, despite a growing economy, there's malnutrition and anemia in places that export their own food, while the Amazon and our seas are being destroyed and overfished. Here is where cooking can help us again — not just in Peru, but all over the world. How? By placing cooking at the heart of our homes, at the center of everything, with information and education. Because with information and education, we can make the right decisions about what to cook and what to eat so we can find a new balance, in which we can all live in harmony. A new harmony between health and enjoyment, between small producers and the big industries, between the local culture and the environment, between local products and universal products. That's precisely the reason why we have to place cooking at the heart of our homes. Because if we take this message to every home, if cooking becomes important again in each home, the effects in the market and in many other activities would be massive and powerful.
