Abstract

Growing evidence reveals food production systems and consumption practices contradict goals for environmental well-being and population health. This interdisciplinary paper reviews research for impacts from diets on non-communicable human diseases, climate change, and animal well-being. With increasing pressures to innovate and reduce economic as well as emotional costs associated with ill-health, our recommendations could positively impact policy.
