Reduction in the current high levels of meat and dairy consumption may contribute to environmental as well as human health. Since meat is a major source of Fe, effects on Fe intake need to be evaluated, especially in groups vulnerable to negative Fe status. In the present study we evaluated the effects of replacing meat and dairy foods with plant-based products on environmental sustainability (land requirement) and health (SFA and Fe intakes) in women.
These are conclusions published in an article in Public Health Nutrition, Februar 2013. One of the co-authors is associate professor Sanderine Nonhebel of the Center for Energy and Environmental Sciences IVEM, University of Groningen. She provided the data about the environmental sustainability consequences of the diet.
