Can we feed a future population of 10 billion people a healthy diet within planetary boundaries?

The EAT-Lancet Commission on Food, Planet, Health broughttogether 37 world-leading scientists from across the globe toanswer this question:
Can we feed a future population of 10 billion people a healthydiet within planetary boundaries?

The answer is yes, but it will be impossible withouttransforming eating habits, improving food production andreducing food waste.

The EAT-Lancet report is the first full scientific review of whatconstitutes a healthy diet from a sustainable food system, andwhich actions can support and speed up food systemtransformation.

Why is this report so important?

What sets this report apart from similar reports?

What is the 'planetary health diet'?

The planetary health diet is a global reference diet for adults that is symbolically represented by half a plate of fruits, vegetables and nuts. The other half consists of primarily whole grains, plant proteins (beans, lentils, pulses), unsaturated plant oils, modest amounts of meat and dairy, and some added sugars and starchy vegetables. The diet is quite flexible and allows for adaptation to dietary needs, personal preferences and cultural traditions. Vegetarian and vegan diets are two healthy options within the planet health diet but are personal choices.

Why is this diet good for both my health and the environment?

How does a diet based on global assessments apply to me as an individual? And how strictly do I have to adhere to it?

Why should I decrease my meat consumption?

What does the report mean for the agriculture industry and their employees? Has the Commission considered the economic and social costs linked with the recommendations?

Wouldn’t it be more effective to focus on ways to reduce fossil fuel emissions instead of food?
