Would you consider becoming a Reducitarian or Flexitarian? A new report says that, globally we need to cut back consumption of up to 90% of our meat products, indicating a significant change in diet.
Paula Mee Consultant Dietician joined Marian Finucane to discuss a new Lancet Medical Journal report which is causing a stir on the topic of meat.
“This was the first attempt to set universally scientific targets for food systems that apply to all people and the planet.”
“We will need to consume double the amount of fruit, vegetables, nuts and legumes… and we will need to halve our consumption of meat and sugar – that’s globally.”
“I think we are consuming too much processed meat, and that is an issue”
