Environmental Nutrition/Sustainable Diets

Environmental nutrition examines the public health impacts of social, economic, and environmental factors related to the entire food system. Environmental nutrition encompasses both the direct impacts of the contemporary U.S. diet on human health as well as indirect health impacts associated with the conventional, industrial food system. Widely held consensus among medical and public health professionals finds that today’s typical U.S. diet contributes to a range of costly health problems, including obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cognitive decline and dementia, other neuro-degenerative disorders, and various kinds of cancer.
