UN: Poor diets threaten health more than malaria, tuberculosis, measles

08.11.2018 19:11 "Agro Perspectiva" (Kyiv) As of now, one-in-five deaths globally is caused by the poor-quality diets, UN Radio says referring to the FAO report entitled «Preventing nutrient loss and waste across the food system: Policy actions for high-quality diets». The report urges policymakers worldwide to reduce food loss and waste, to improve access to nutritious and healthy food. As to the report, the regular eating of the poor-quality foods worldwide has become a greater public health threat than malaria, tuberculosis or measles. The report admits that despite the great number of the hunger within the world, approximately one-third of all foods produced for human consumption never reaches the consumers plate or bowl. Nutrient-rich foods, such as fruits, vegetables, seafood and meats are highly perishable, rendering them susceptible to losses throughout increasingly complex food production systems. Each year over half of all globally-produced fruits and vegetables are lost or wasted. Moreover, around 25 per cent of all meat produced, equivalent to 75 million cows, goes uneaten. To improve the situation, the report proposes a series of policy actions across the entire food system, including educating all concerned; focusing on perishable foods; improving public and private infrastructure; and closing data gaps on food losses and waste.
