Research shows that the medical diet could have a global impact

Fifteen million fewer deaths per year, a 29% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, a 51% reduction in land use and 5 trillion in annual benefits from the economic, health and environmental outcomes of food production and consumption systems would be the minimum benefits as According to studies by the EAT-Lancet Commission, all countries have adopted a planetary health diet similar to the traditional Mediterranean diet.

The results were presented by Walter on Wednesday at the Academy of Sciences in Athens. C. Willett, professor of epidemiology and nutrition at the Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health.

He said food systems produce about a third of greenhouse gases, so even if fossil fuel consumption were to reach zero, the Paris climate agreement targets will not be met unless the food system is changed. The challenge, he said, was to see how to feed 9.8 billion people by 2050 on a diet that is both healthy and sustainable.
