#EAT-Lancet is in the airwaves. Everyone we know seems to be talking about it. Everyone’s got a view – and so do we.
We’ve been digesting the 47-page report and analysing parts of it – and now release our 24-page Special Report.
We’re concerned about a lack of clarification over funding. We think it’s wrong to represent the ‘Planetary Health Diet’ as a plate of food and show one half by volume and the other half by energy contribution – just so it looks better?
We’ve run some different scenarios for flexitarian and vegan diets to see how much flexibility there is in the ‘Planetary Health Diet.’ A surprising amount as it happens – but is it enough for everyone?
And then – is the decision to propose halving meat consumption really the result of appraising hard, scientific facts? We don’t think the solutions being proposed are as simple as the Lancet authors make out.
We close off our analysis by offering some recommendations. And we hope you’ll engage in the conversation about all of this, as food, health and planet is central to our mission towards a natural, sustainable future.
