"Nordic eating habits are criticised in the report"

"the Nordic region can become a world leader in the transition to a healthy and sustainable food system – but achieving this requires extensive work, according to a new report."

"Among other things, the consumption of red meat in Sweden must be cut by three quarters, and the intake of nuts and legumes tiodubblas."

"the Conditions are there. The nordic kostråden is world-class, in the school served healthy food and antibiotic use in animal production is low."

"It underlines the researchers in a first-nordic follow-up of the much talked about EAT-the Lancet report, which was published in January."

"– The nordic countries have in many areas been a leader in the transformation of the food system, " says Amanda Wood at the Stockholm Resilience Centre at Stockholm university."

"She has written the report together with nine other researchers on behalf of the Nfa."

"– But still a lot to do if we are to achieve all the health - and climate targets, " she continues."

"Despite the positive elements leads namely current diet to both public health problems and significant climate and environmental impacts."

"About every second adult is overweight, and according to the researchers' calculations help the nordic eating habits in the average to nearly three times as much greenhouse gas emissions compared with what is recommended by the EAT-Lancet commission."

"– We have not analyzed the intermediaries in the food system, such as marketing and retail, " says Wood."

"– But they are probably driving in a way that is not always to the advantage of the most healthy and sustainable option."

"So how need to the diet in Sweden and in the Nordic countries changed?"

"EAT-the Lancet-the commission recommends a daily intake of red meat a maximum of 28 grams per day – a quarter of the current consumption. As with our nordic neighbours we consume also still too much added sugar."

"the Wood think, however, that it is at least equally important to increase the amount of healthy options that cut down on the less good."

"On the list of the major risk factors linked to the diets and premature mortality is a low intake of whole grains, nuts and vegetables in the top."

"– This is a combination of measures. Our message is not that we should begin to regulate all the parts of the system. Regulations are a tool, to increase cooperation between different sectors is another, " says Wood."

"in regards to the legumes and nuts need the swedes eat ten times as much as they do today, according to the researchers."

"And despite the fact that as fruit juices also in Sweden increased to an average of 151 grams per day reaches it is not up to EAT-the Lancet-the report target at 300 grams on a daily basis."

"– We eat a little more vegetables and some more fruits and berries but has far, far left to the case, confirming Mai-Lis Hellenius, livsstilsprofessor at the Karolinska institute."

"It goes in the wrong direction is the consumption of animal protein and fat," she continues."

"– But it is important to keep in mind is to EAT-the Lancet-the report is written based on the environment in the first place. Really so a bit of meat as they recommend, you really need to not eat for health reasons."

"Corrected: In an earlier version there was an incorrect statement about how much the Swedish consumption of red meat needs to fall."

"Behind the EAT-Lancet commission is the organization EAT, with the Norwegian Gunhild He in the lead, and the prestigious journal The Lancet."

"In cooperation with, among others, the Stockholm Resilience Centre at Stockholm university, they published in January of this year a report which shows how we humans should eat in order to life on earth will not be affected by the catastrophic damage on the planet."

"the Background is that more than three billion people have been known to get in the day, at the same time that today's food production depletes the earth's resources in an unsustainable way, and is a driving factor behind climate change."
