This is may be controversial for some.
‘New plant-focused diet would transform planet’s future, say scientists’ in the Guardian article yesterday. This article is pointing to the idea that a ‘Planetary diet would prevent millions of deaths and avoid climate change’
Now, there is a global move towards halving the amount of animal protein people eat, especially meat and also processed sugar. Essentially it is a campaign to make the Mediterranean diet a ‘Planetary health Diet’.
My practice is aligned with this initiative and promotes both the relationship between human health and environmental health.
There is a global Commission set up of prominent scientists with a global campaign launched to promote this new plant-focused diet they claim would ‘transform’ our planet’s future.
Climate Change is our first true initiative to solve a planetary issue at a planetary scale. What do you think about combining this with a planetary human health solution like this?
