How seaweed shaped the past and could shape our future

Too often seaweed is portrayed as a slimy, smelly nuisance that disrupts beach trips and ocean swims. In fact, seaweed, officially a type of marine algae, is an untapped resource that could transform the planet and our health.Seaweed grows fast and is nutrient-rich, can be made into an alternative to plastic and some textiles, and is a potential store of carbon that can absorb pollutants, according to “The Seaweed Revolution,” a new book by Vincent Doumeizel, a senior adviser at the United Nations Global Compact on Oceans.The bacterial gunk and food debris that builds up on teeth over time can be an invaluable source of information for archaeologists. This fossilized dental plaque — which can survive for millennia, particularly when it’s from eras before modern dentistry — holds a trove of tantalizing information about diet and disease. A new study of biological markers contained in fossilized plaque found that, before they largely disappeared from Western diets, different types of seaweed were once a staple food for Europeans for thousands of years — even in some prehistoric landlocked communities.https://edition.cnn.com/2023/10/21/world/seaweed-science-newsletter-wt-scn/index.html

                We have to see the nutritional value of seaweed and take advantage of it

                    Amazing, this is a great revelation, I wish all nations with coastal areas can now utilize the seaweed in this nutritious way. This will go along way in keeping our coastal areas clean and will double as a way of fighting food insecurity.

                        Seaweed is a staple ingredient in many Asian countries because of its nutritious qualities as well as its depth of flavor and versatility.
