Default Our health, climate health: A study


Decreasing consumption of ultra-processed foods may improve environmental sustainability.

The lower ultra-processed food dietary contents, the lower the environmental footprints of the diet consumed.

Decreasing ultra-processed food consumption should be considered for health and for environmental protection.

The increased consumption of ultra-processed food influences human health and environmental sustainability

Talk about a two-fer. The creation of the processed food which is killing us all is also helping kill the planet.

Changing the diet to a less processed one could be helpful for health but also for environmental sustainability. UPF are unnecessary foods that should not be present in a balanced diet, and promote overconsumption, which is one of the main reasons for the increasing negative environmental impact (Anastasiou et al., 2022a; Anastasiou et al., 2022b). UPF production is also a primary driver off environmental pressures (Anastasiou et al., 2022a; Anastasiou et al., 2022b; da Silva et al., 2021; Garzillo et al., 2022; Kesse-Guyot et al., 2023). Each life cycle assessment (LCA) stage of UPF production contributes in a different way to the negative environmental impact, which is characterized by extensive monoculture crops, high energy demands for processing, a long transport chain and excessive packaging (Anastasiou et al., 2022b).

This was based on questionnaires but they weren't trying to be finegrained about it. They seemed to sort into four broad categories which takes the curse off a bit. But I'm not good at the math 🤣

Between the climate angle and the great reviews of Toxic Superfoods, we might be able to throw off the gooey vegan chains which seek to force us into seeing it their way.

Food fanatics, truly.
