Our diets, particularly the meat-heavy American diet, have a huge environmental footprint that not only threatens biodiversity but also our ability to continue producing healthy, nutritious food today and in the future,” said Stephanie Feldstein, director of the population and sustainability program at the Center for Biological Diversity. “Now it’s up to secretaries Burwell and Vilsack to make sure the final guidelines are written to promote the health of Americans, not industry.”
