Sunday Forum

January 26: The Lancet Study, EAT, presented by Steve Long

One’s diet is a matter of personal concern. Often people determine what they (should) eat based on knowledge about nutrition and on their own medical history. Recently, nutrition has become a public health issue, because of the environmental damage caused by cattle grazing. This forum will present personal diet, seen from the bird’s eye view of global health and sustainability. Can the global picture influence us in matters as personal as one’s diet?
Dr. Stephen Long will present findings from LANCET Journal’s EAT-Lancet Commission. This commission has the most recent evidence about diet and sustainability, and some of the political and economic considerations in creating a world with a sustainable diet.
