A VEGAN DIET COULD FEED THE GLOBAL POPULATION, ACCORDING TO NEW STUDY

Researchers from Lancaster University have found that a plantbased diet could feed the global population, providing society changes its approach to food and diet. Environmental concerns are one of the prime reasons people switch to a vegan diet, however, this new information gives more reason to make the change.

Meat and dairy should be replaced with plant-based alternatives, according to the study. An extract from the study, reads: “The current production of crops is sufficient to provide enough food for the projected global population of 9.7 billion in 2050, although very significant changes to the socioeconomic conditions of many (ensuring access to global food supply) and radical changes to the dietary choices of most (replacing most meat and dairy with plantbased alternatives, and greater acceptance of human-edible crops currently fed to animals, especially maize, as directly-consumed human food) would be required.

“Under all scenarios, the scope for biofuel production is limited. Our analysis finds no nutritional case for feeding human-edible crops to animals, which reduces calorie and protein supplies. If society continues on a ‘business-as-usual’ dietary trajectory, a 119 per cent increase in edible crops grown will be required by 2050.”
