The EAT-Lancet Commission Summary Report: Food in the Anthropocene
|Uploaded||January 16, 2019|
The EAT–Lancet Commission addresses the need to feed a growing global population a healthy diet while also defining sustainable food systems that will minimise damage to our planet.
The Commission quantitively describes a universal healthy reference diet, based on an increase in consumption of health-promoting foods (such as vegetables, fruits, whole grains, legumes, and nuts), and a decrease in consumption of other foods (such as red meat, sugar, and refined grains) that would provide major health benefits, and also increase the likelihood of attainment of the Sustainable Development Goals. This is set against the backdrop of defined scientific boundaries that would ensure a safe operating space within six Earth systems, towards sustaining a healthy planet.download
