UK Parliament questions consumption of fish, meat and dairy.

A report published on Tuesday by the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Committee of the British Parliament said that the government should rethink its previous advice favoring fish consumption. Citing a perilous decline in the marine environment, the report recommended ensuring food security by growing more fruits and vegetables instead.

In acknowledging the adverse effects of meat production as well, the report stated, “UK consumers buying meat and dairy products should be encouraged to consider the environmental, as well as the health, impacts of their choices.”

A big thank you, British Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Committee, for your interest in safeguarding both humans and the environment. We look forward to your country’s exemplary leadership in advocating the wholesome plant-based diet for the good of all.
