To improve people’s health more refrigerated vehicles are needed world wide to improve the transport of fresh fruit and veg to retail outlets. For example India wastes more food between production and sale than any other country. More lorries mean more CO2 emissions.

Refrigerated vehicles are difficult to improve on their carbon footprint (types of refrigeration gases).

Therefore to reduce this carbon footprint governments and city/population designers who are responsible for expanding population centres should consider these factors in their design. This will help determine the health of those populations. Designing proper food growing technologies (IE., without employing chemicals) within cities should be a major consideration in the design of these developments. There can then be massive reductions on CO2 emissions and vast improvements upon people’s health.
