Discuss the unique role of nutrient-dense animal-source foods in healthy diets and the intersection of health, food security, and environmental impact.
- Animal-source foods are critical sources of high-quality protein and essential nutrients needed in healthy diets, particularly for women, children, aging and low-income populations. These nutrients are not easily replaceable from other sources.
- Nutrient-deficiencies are common, even in high-income countries.
- Scientific evidence is key to accurately measuring and understanding the environmental impact of livestock production, in order to produce these necessary foods sustainably.
