1S2: Introduction - Healthy foods produced in circular food systems
Todayâ€™s global food system is responsible for about a quarter of all human-induced greenhouse gases, one third of global terrestrial acidification, the majority of global eutrophication, and covers 40% of the worldâ€™s ice and desert-free land. Simultaneously, people still lack sufficient food, consume low-quality diets, or eat too much food (triple burden of malnutrition). Consequently, these unhealthy diets result in serious health risks such as diet-related obesity and diet-related non-communicable diseases including coronary heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. Humanity, therefore, now faces the grand challenge making healthy diets accessible to all people while safeguarding the planetâ€™s health.
