Alignment of Healthy Dietary Patterns and Environmental Sustainability: A Systematic Review

This systematic review confirms earlier findings that a number of well-categorised sustainable dietary patterns are also good for health outcomes. There was consistent evidence to suggest that diets higher in plant-based foods such as vegetables, fruits, legumes, seeds, nuts, and whole grains and lower in animal-based foods (especially red meat), are both healthier and associated with a lower impact on the environment.



Bonne lecture. PAM

La Bièvre - SMBVB's curator insight, October 29, 11:05 AM
Les fermes urbaines, une disruption ? la réponse appelle une contextualisation, à Philadelphie, ville pauvre dans laquelle une personne sur quatre souffre de la faim. Dans un tel environnement, la solution de la ferme entrepôt apparaît pertinente pour répondre à moindre coût à une production alimentaire de proximité tout en créant des emplois locaux. Au-delà de la ferme, c'est toute une démarche qui est initiée, incluant la commercialisation. Dirsuption, certainement, mais pas tant par la seule ferme, mais bien par la prise en compte globale de la question de l'alimentation.

Avec le retour des potagers, le retour des poulaillers ! Cette initiative à Watertown consiste à installer des poulaillers en ville, dans des entreprises afin de répondre à la demande d'une alimentation mieux maîtriser. Les entreprises passent du "non" à "pourquoi pas" quand elles sont abordées à ce propos et ce mouvement prend de l'ampleur. Les poules permettent en plus de recycler des déchets. Après la pause cigarette, verra-t-on les salariés descendre pour une pause poule ?
