Challenges and Controversies in Sustainable Diets

Thursday, 19th April7:30pm-9:00pm

For the ATOM society April talk, we welcome Dr Marco Springmann from the Nuffield Department of Population Health. He is currently working on a multidisciplinary project focused on the analysis and management of animal products and their substitutes called “Livestock, Environment and People” (LEAP). ( www.futureoffood.ox.ac.uk/project/future-meat-and-dairy-fomad )
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    
Although there is general agreement that predominantly plant-based diets are healthier and more environmentally sustainable than diets with high portions of meat and dairy, some controversies remain.
Dr Springmann will discuss research on emissions, land and water use, and whether a plant-based diet can lead to micronutrient deficiencies.
