The Lancet To Approach Nutrition From Several Perspectives In 2019

The Lancet: 2019: the year for nutrition
Editorial Board

“Poor nutrition is a key driver and risk factor for disease. … In 2019, we are approaching nutrition from several perspectives. Published [on Wednesday], Food in the Anthropocene: the EAT-Lancet Commission on Healthy Diets for Sustainable Food Systems links nutritional targets with environmental sustainability. … On Jan. 27, The Lancet will publish a second Commission that explores additional aspects of nutrition and food systems. … Building on these two Commissions, later in 2019 The Lancet will publish a series of papers on the Double Burden of Malnutrition, led by WHO and informed by approaches including evolutionary anthropology and economics. Future series will include papers on adolescent-specific nutrition. Nutrition is a vast subject that needs a multisectoral approach. Throughout this year, nutrition will be a special focus at The Lancet family of journals. Sustainable food systems that ensure health-promoting nutrition for all need urgent attention and will benefit people and planet alike” (1/16).
