Eating for the Environment
Dietary choices are important to personal health, and they can also affect the health of the planet.
Food production impacts the environment, and interest in how food choices can reduce this impact is rising. According to the 2018 International Food Information Council Foundation food and health survey, 59 percent of consumers say itís important to them that the foods they purchase and consume be produced sustainably, up from 50 percent in 2017. The latest research, including research from Tufts, indicates that a more plant-based diet is a more sustainable, environmentally-friendly diet.
