My latest article in a now-defunct online science magazine, “Could the Acai Berry Diet Fad Help Save the Amazon Rainforest?“, introduces the acai palm tree.
How does the popularity of acai berry diet supplements and energy drinks affect the environment of the Amazon rainforest? The acai palm tree may be a winner rather than a victim. Are there any concerns?
While it would be fun to travel to Brazil and eat fresh acai, perhaps the best I can do is to read about the tree.
