Environmentally-Friendly Regional Diets

Posted Jan 05 2009 12:00am

I was recently looking through the most recent issue of the Public Health Nutrition and found an article titled "Towards health-promoting and environmentally-friendly regional diets" by Bere and Brug. This is the first time I've seen an article in a scientific journal focusing on the importance and practicality of balancing a healthy diet and environmental sustainability.

The authors argue that dietary recommendations should then be tailored to the area in which the dietitian or nutritionist is working, to accomodate foods found locally, to preserve the environment and, at the same time, promote maintenance of culture, such as the Mediterranean diet.
