Clitravi: Eat-Lancet report on the health impact of processed meat products is based on inadequate evidence
The European meat processing industry recognizes healthy diet and sustainable food system.
On the occasion of the release of the Eat-Lancet Commission on "The European meat processing industry recognizes healthy diet and sustainable food system livestock sector.
Despite the report to the single foodstuff, the conclusion conflicts with the purpose of the Eat-Lancet Commission as the report collects and proposes again some of the arguments contained in previous anti-livestock studies, also co -signed by some members of the Eat-Lancet Commission.

The conclusions of the Eat-Lancet report on the health impact of processed meat products are now available on the extrapolation of causal interpretations, without taking into account that obesity and non-communicable diseases are multifactorial matters.
The European meat processing industry underlines the most important priority to promote a healthy diet and sustainable choices.
Nitrogen and phosphorus, water, land use and biodiversity, as well as for certain crops, of which some are particularly devastating, distorting the data for ideological purposes is incoherent and socially irresponsible.

Climate change prevention, protection of biodiversity, prevention of good health and welfare conditions, protecting biodiversity shifting the attention to the lifestyle.
Maintaining a balanced diet and regular exercise is essential for individuals and can make the difference. But, once more, education and scientific based campaigns can help people moving towards sustainable and balanced diets.
We hope that the Eat-Lancet Commission will be able to increase the negative impact of the livestocks and that meat processing companies are increasing their investments in innovation and to provide safe and sustainable food products.
