The Provincial Health Services Authority published a report, Agriculture’s Connection to Health: A Summary of the Evidence Relevant to British Columbia (April 2016), authored by Lisa Powell, Lenore Newman, and Melanie Kurrein. This report outlines the relationships between agriculture and human health, finding that availability of local foods and proximity to agricultural production does have positive impacts on human health, influences food choices, and helps enable healthy eating.
