Environmental impacts of shifting diets

Tamar Haspel, Washington Post columnist, moderated a Facebook Live discussion that took place at IFT17 on how shifting diets to more plant-based food might impact the environment. Panelists include: Mary Christ-Erwin, Taylor Wallace, Adam Drewnowski, and Jessica Fanzo.


In conjunction with the Facebook Live event, an open roundtable discussion occurred at IFT17. Dr. Jessica Fanzo provided an overview of sustainability and the effect of human choices/social inequality on sustainable diets. Dr. Adam Drewnowski then progressed the conversation into how to measure sustainability, nutrient density/global nutrition imbalance, and its implication on the food industry.
