Abstract

This path-breaking book situates the thorny issue of diets firmly within what has been called the Anthropocene—the era of human-induced changes to the planet. Since many of these changes are associated with food production and consumption, the authors argue that we need to develop sustainable diets in order to reduce the negative impacts of the current global food system on the environment, as well as to improve public health. To this end, the book is informed by an ecological public health perspective, which “views health as a function of relationships, a web of connections between humans, planet and society.”
