We are decimating the planet to produce food that is killing us. Our food production systems are the single biggest cause of environmental change, while diseases linked to ultra-processed foods are at epidemic levels. Enough. uses the latest scientific research to address this vital question: can we provide a growing population with a healthy diet from sustainable food systems? Fortunately for us all, the answer is yes. Enough. shows exactly how we can tackle both of these urgent, interconnected challenges at the same time. Using a seminal piece of research published in 2019, the Planetary Health Diet (PHD), Dr Coburn takes the reader around the world to reveal the hidden consequences of our food choices, and how we can easily make changes which are better for ourselves and the planet. She details which food groups we should be eating, which we should avoid - and why. Changing our way of eating is something that every one of us has the power to do. Enough. is a clear, ultimately hopeful and hugely important roadmap for our own future health, and that of the planet.
