WHO pulled out of EAT-Lancet. Italians want to stick with a traditional diet that has kept them healthy for millennia.

The World Health Organization pulled out of sponsoring a global initiative promoting healthier and sustainable diets across the world after pressure from an Italian official who raised concerns about the impact of the diet on people’s health and livelihoods.

The event—the launch of the EAT-Lancet Commission on Food, Planet, Health in Geneva, Switzerland on 28 March—still went ahead, sponsored by the government of Norway.

WHO dropped its planned sponsorship after Gian Lorenzo Cornado, Italy’s ambassador and permanent representative of Italy to the international organizations in Geneva, questioned the scientific basis for the diet which is focused on promoting predominantly plant based foods, and excluding foods deemed unhealthy, including meat and other animal based foods.

Cornado warned that a global move to such a diet could lead to the loss of millions of jobs linked to animal husbandry and the production of “unhealthy” foods, and destroy traditional diets which are part of cultural heritage.

The initiative “urging for a centralised control of our dietary choices” risked “the total elimination of consumers’ freedom of choice,” …

although it is important “to consume no more than 98 grams of red meat (pork, beef or lamb), 203 grams of poultry and 196 grams of fish per week.”


I wonder what brand of calculator those very precise numbers came from

Frank Zappa was prescient, as he correctly foresaw the creation of "The Central Scrutinizer."

98 grams of red meat sounds much more scientific than 100 grams does.

I want the government out of my kitchen. The government of the United States is to blame in many ways for the health crisis we face today. Trusting them to get it right this time makes no sense. I think it is Chris Kresser who says food must pass the evolutionary smell test. I stick with single ingredient foods that have been manipulated the least in our modern era. I figure I can't go far wrong that way.

Well, thank you Gian Lorenzo Cornado! I don't want to live without Italian food either!

Vegans will kill us all. It's a belief system, not sense.

And the ironic thing is that they are "concerned about animals." So am I, and me buying humane meat speaks a lot louder than they do.
