More than half a million could die as climate change impacts diet – report.New research shows global warming’s effect on the quality of food available could kill more than 500,000 people a year around the world by 2050by Damian Carrington
Climate change could kill more than 500,000 people a year globally by 2050 by making their diets less healthy, according to new research published in the Lancet.The research is the first to assess how the impacts of global warming could affect the quality of the diets available to people and found fewer fruit and vegetables would be available as a result of climatic changes. These are vital in curbing heart disease, strokes and diet-related cancers, leading the study to conclude that the health risks of climate change are far greater than thought.
