Eating Plants for the Planet
Climate change, regardless of its cause, is an undeniable reality that has been accompanied by a rapidly increasing global human population. In order to feed a projected 10 billion people in 2050, whilst improving the Earth’s environment, radical shifts will need to be made in our food systems. Food systems have the potential to nurture human health and planetary health, but currently, they threaten both. The EAT-Lancet ‘Planetary Health Diet’ offers an opportunity to utilise food as a lever for improving the health of ourselves and our planet.
