[Meat consumption reduction policies: benefits for climate change mitigation and health].
TLDR
Dietary changes, with lower intake of red and processed meat, are likely to be beneficial for improving health and for the environment by reducing emissions of GHG and coordinated actions are needed across public health and other sectors to promote healthy, low-emission diets.
Policies for Sustainable Agricultural Production and Consumption
TLDR
Proposed policies could include public health awareness programmes, ending subsidies for intensive agriculture, promotion of low-impact farming, government sponsorship of healthy food programmes and selective taxes on unhealthy foods.
Environmental and Health Cost of Meat: How to Reduce Consumption?
  • Environmental Science
  • 2017
Meat consumption is increasing as global diets change with accompanying environmental and health concerns. Meat production involves the use of antibiotics and additives to promote weight gain and to
Livestock and global change: Emerging issues for sustainable food systems
TLDR
The global food system that will have to improve its resource use efficiency and environmental performance significantly to ensure the sustainability of global food production and consumption is outlined.
Strategies for Sustainable Substitution of Livestock Meat
TLDR
In this review, strategies that focus on meat consumption patterns are evaluated from the technological feasibility, environmental impact and consumer acceptance viewpoints.
Reproductive health and the industrialized food system: a point of intervention for health policy.
TLDR
It is concluded that policies to advance a healthy food system are necessary to prevent adverse reproductive health effects and avoid associated health costs among current and future generations.

TLDR
This review will consider various options for improving the sustainability of livestock production with particular emphasis on finding ways to replace conventional crops as sources of animal feeds, and Alternatives, such as currently underutilised crops and insects, represent possible solutions.
Impact of changes in diet on the availability of land, energy demand, and greenhouse gas emissions of agriculture
BackgroundRecent scientific investigations have revealed a correlation between nutrition habits and the environmental impacts of agriculture. So, it is obviously worthwhile to study what effects a
MEAT: The past, present, and future of meat in China’s diet
1.0 Introduction The consumption of meat has impacted social systems and the environment on a global scale and is becoming increasingly problematic as production and market systems change. Livestock
Potential contributions of food consumption patterns to climate change.
TLDR
It is suggested that changes in the diet toward more plant-based foods, toward meat from animals with little enteric fermentation, and toward foods processed in an energy-efficient manner offer an interesting and little explored area for mitigating climate change.

TLDR
The results from the study suggest that critical impact asymmetries due to both climate and socio-economic structures may deepen current production and consumption gaps between developed and developing world; it is suggested that adaptation of agricultural techniques will be central to limit potential damages under climate change.
The economics of obesity: dietary energy density and energy cost.
TLDR
Evidence is emerging that obesity in America is a largely economic issue and if the rise in obesity rates is related to the growing price disparity between healthy and unhealthy foods, then the current strategies for obesity prevention may need to be revised.
