WORLD MEATLESS DAY

WORLD MEATLESS DAY


The world population is currently around 7.7 billion, which could be 10 billion by 2050. In such a situation, scientists have made a diet plan so that food can be supplied to such a large population without harming the environment. It has been called Planetary Health Diet. Meat and dairy products are not completely banned in this diet plan. However, it has been suggested that people should move to legumes and pulses to supply protein. Under this plan, you will have to remove most of the things you eat frequently from your daily diet and include those that eat less.


How will change in food?

If you eat meat everyday then this is the biggest thing to reduce. If you eat red meat then a burger a week and if you eat a dish made from animal intestines, then you should eat such things only once a month. However, you can enjoy something made of fish several times a week and eat chicken only once a week. But apart from this, you will have to supply protein from vegetables. Researchers recommend eating pulses and legumes. However, starchy carbohydrate-supplied vegetables such as potatoes and arbi will have to be cut. These vegetables are eaten in abundance in African countries.

Then what to eat in such a situation?

If you make a list of all the things that you will eat on a normal day, then these things will be on that list.
1 - Strict peeled things like almonds - 50 grams
2 - legumes like soybean - 75 grams
3 - Fish - 28 grams
4 - Meat - 14 grams of red meat and 29 grams of chicken
5 - Carbohydrate - Bread and rice 232 grams and 50 grams of starchy vegetables
6 - Dairy - 250 grams (one glass of milk)
8 - Vegetables - 300 grams and fruits 200 grams
This diet has 31 grams of sugar and 50 grams of olive oil.

Will this food be tasteless?

Harvard University professor Walter Willett has also been involved in research conducted on this issue. Professor Willett, who spent his childhood among the fields, says that he used to eat red meat three times a day, but now his eating style has been in keeping with the Planetary Health Diet. Willett explains his example by saying, "There used to be many varieties of food items. You can mix these things in different ways and prepare many dishes."


Is this diet plan a fantasy?

Under this scheme, people in every part of the world should change their style of food. Europe and North Africa will have to cut red meat drastically. At the same time, East Asia will have to cut down on eating fish. If you talk about Africa, then people will have to cut down on eating starchy vegetables. Laine Gordon, director of the Stockholm Residency Center at Stockholm University, says, "Humanity has never tried to change its diet at this level and at this speed. Now that it is imaginary or not, then fantasies are negative. Is not needed. Now is the time when we dream of creating a good world. "

Whose brain is this idea?

The Eat-Lancet Commission's project involves 37 scientists from around the world, ranging from agricultural scientists to experts on topics such as climate change and nutrition. These people released this diet plan after researching the subject for two years. Has been published in a research journal called Lancet.

10 billion people need to eat

As of 2011, the world's population was up to seven billion, which has now reached 7.7 billion. But by 2050, this figure will increase to 10 billion. According to the researchers, this diet plan will save 11 million people from dying every year. Actually, these people will be protected from diseases caused by poor diets such as heart attack, heart strokes, and cancer. In developed countries of the world, these diseases are one of the biggest causes of untimely deaths of people.

How bad is farming for the world?

Farming and forest cultivation account for about 25 percent of global greenhouse emissions worldwide. Almost the same share is in electricity, atmosphere machines, all the world's trains, airplanes, and automobiles. But if you understand the impact of food grains on the world environment, then you will find that non-vegetarian and dairy products are very harmful to the environment. Cattle account for 14 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions. At the same time, cattle account for 18 percent of the greenhouse gases produced by human activities. If we talk about other greenhouse gases, farming plays a big role in the emission of methane and nitrous oxide. In the same way, if we talk about water, agriculture and food production, then it is a big risk because they consume 70 percent of the world's drinking water sources.

Will the world survive this way?

The researchers aimed to supply food to as many people as possible. But one of the objectives was to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases, prevent an organism from extinction, prevent the expansion of cultivable land and conserve water. However, changing the style of catering will not serve these purposes. In order to do this, food wastage is being prevented and the land used in agriculture is more and more
It is necessary to produce more grains.

Ban on meat

Professor Willett says, "If we were just talking about reducing the emission of greenhouse gases, then we would have said that everybody should become vegetarian. But it was not clear that vegetarian food was the healthiest food." The Eat-Lancet Commission will go to governments around the world and institutions like the World Health Organization to understand this research to understand whether these institutions can initiate a change in the style of catering.
