Two of the major challenges of our time are our population's health and the health of the planet. It is increasingly clear that our diets can have an important impact on both our physical and mental health. But the food and drink we consume also have a major impact on the environment. At present, 1 in 5 deaths worldwide are linked to consuming a poor quality diet, and globally, food production is responsible for about a third of all greenhouse gas emissions (which drive global warming), over two-thirds of freshwater usage and over a third of available land use.
