New study claims this diet could save the planet

Washington: One can be aware that a herbal diet can make you healthier by lowering the risk of obesity, heart disease and diabetes.

Now, a study has suggested that filling your plate with plant foods instead of animal foods can help save the planet.

The study, conducted at the University of Oxford and published in the Journal of Nature, found that as a result of population growth and continued consumption of Western diets rich in red meat and processed foods, the environmental pressure of the food system could increase by 90 per cent by 2050, crossing important planetary boundaries that define a safe space for mankind beyond which Earth's vital ecosystems could become unstable.

"It could lead to a dangerous level of climate change with a higher incidence of extreme weather events affecting the regulatory function of forest ecosystems and biodiversity, and polluting waters that would lead to low-oxygen dead zones in the oceans," said author Marco Springmann.

To preserve a healthier planet, food loss and waste have to be halved and agricultural practices and technologies improved. But it will also require a shift to more herbal diets.
