Posted by Muk Khatri in Food On 6th June 2018

Some of our most beloved foods such as peanuts, salmon, coffee and bananas may not be around for much longer. Value these foods because they may become extinct during your lifetime.

#1 Chocolate

According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association, cocoa plants could go extinct by the year 2050 due to climate change. But have some hope, scientists around the world are working to save cocoa crops.

#2 Honey

Honey bee populations are being decimated by pathogens, pesticides and climate change. As the world's bee population declines, so will honey production.

#3 Avocados

It takes a lot of water to produce our favorite toast topping. 90% of the nation's avocados are grown in California, a state plagued by a severely long drought, and avocados face an uncertain future if dry conditions persist.

#4 Coffee

Studies suggest that if climates shift by more than two degrees Celsius, rainfall patterns could change so drastically, that more than half of the world's coffee production regions would become environmentally unsuitable for growing beans.
