6:32 am
the effects of climate change but the targets they've said could be tricky for some though they say that the ideal diet limits daily poultry consumption to twenty nine grams that's equivalent to one of the have chicken nuggets and red meat to just seven grams a day now the report was published in the magazine the lancet says fish would need to be limited to twenty eight grams a day which is a quarter of a medium sized fill it the experts say egg consumption would need to be restricted to around one and a half a week per person but they say that all of that can be balanced out with five hundred grams of vegetables and fruit every single day joining us live now from stockholm via skype is dr fabrice the clerk who is one of the authors of that report he's also a science the rector of eat which is a global nonprofit startup dedicated to transforming our global food system thank you so much for joining us here on al-jazeera so we just picked up
6:33 am
a few bits from your reports i mean on the face of it it effectively means a lot less meat a lot less alamo products and a lot more vegetables and fruit how is that first of all how is that going to help our planet and our waistlines. so the if you got it right others often useful to pull those who need to that is out through because it's basically a small hamburger or medium outgroup reach it's two to three servings of chicken but we get two to four servings of a fish truly that's a bit about east part small but you can make delicious and very healthy menus with that the most important point is that the dietary recommendations are completely incrementally founded on an individual health system by following this law it's which is compatible with the world health organization diet we severely reduce obesity and overweight in the western countries but we also ensure food adequacy security in countries where there still rampant food insecurity on the planet side
6:34 am
it freezes and we need to ensure that we protect natural ecosystems to fight the climate as a living space for from our diversity but i would guess that most people know that eating less especially red meat and certain eating more fruit and vegetable is good for the health of the person and also the health of the planet i guess the point is that i'm not sure if this goes a little bit beyond your remit is how do you convince people especially in the western world how do you convince them to eat like this. well that's what we but by demonstrating that what we're asking is not all that radical but is that food to be reinforced fifty years ago that is a lot of focus being played on based on reducing red meat consumption much more modest portions but i mean it's invitation to discover or to say that the ten thousand species in varieties of into ice plant species. could be decorating lakes
6:35 am
so it's really important for exploration so they were two hundred encourage people also to to recognize that a lot of the actions that were are being acetate to fight climate are very expensive they're difficult they're they're accessible this is a choice you can make three four times a day as an expert on health and environment and so it's very much in your reach it's possible and it's part of our there is these so effectively then i guess making people take personal responsibility for both how they and how that is going to impact on the planet now here in the u.k. there is talk of classing obesity as a disease as opposed to the result of a lifestyle what do you make of moves like that do you think that helps your cause or hinders it. i think it is absolutely critical that we recognize that the city has won the primary drivers of premature mortality in the last twenty five percent
6:36 am
of adults are obese and rising and even cape is right behind this this is what's radical is that we allow this kind of for help to exist in our society and that we think that a dietary shift is what's radical so i completely support the recognizing this is a serious challenge for many and ensuring that we provide support to education accessibility and affordability to healthy food as well as the recreation just our space allows people to live much on the final point so forgive me for interrupting you if it's shown in a few years or decades that people just aren't changing their dietary habits the ever to see a future when maybe it should be imposed by countries themselves a sort of rationing if you will of things like meat and eggs and fish we haven't proposed that at all and they were hoping that we don't need to go and don't envision this climate changes but rather are encouraging government supports its support for any of those crops that are the foundations of the diet and support
