Meat, Climate Change and Global Child Health (pp. 553-559) $45.00
Authors:  John Powles and James Smith
Animal production is a leading contributor to global
greenhouse gas emissions. Different animal products have
different associations with disease risks in low and high
income countries. Global meat consumption in 2050
should: Optimise direct effects on health in low and high
income countries and reduce indirect threats to health from
climate change. Target intake patterns need to be
behaviourally realistic. Existing patterns of meat intake in
United Kingdom (UK) adults were assessed using the
National Diet and Nutrition Survey of 2000/1. A meat
intake pattern similar to that of the fifth of the UK adult
population with the lowest current intakes of red and
processed meat is a plausible candidate target for the whole
population in 2050: unprocessed red meat 15 g/d, processed
meat 5 g/d and white meat 50 g/d. To come within the
preferred pattern the other four fifths of the population
would need, on average, to make large reductions in their
intakes of unprocessed red meat and processed meat. No
changes in white meat intakes would be needed. These
changes could be expected to substantially reduce risks of
colorectal cancer, coronary heart disease and diabetes in the
UK. If the whole UK population were to shift to a pattern of
meat intake currently practiced by around one fifth of the
population, substantial gains in health and in climate
change mitigation could be achieved. More of the
sustainable global livestock carrying capacity could then be
used to improve child nutrition in low and middle income
