改善营养可以拯救生命—以及地球

多伦多—上个月,当世界领导人、活动家、倡议家和首席执行官们齐聚纽约市联合国讨论世界最紧迫的挑战时,气候危机占据了头条位置。相反,营养—人文、经济和环境进步的基石之—获得的关注少得可怜。

是的,联合国大会会议周伊始,世界领导人就签署了全民健康覆盖的政治宣言。但是,尽管这一宣言将营养列为良好健康的积极因素之一,却并没有将它列为重点。这不算反常:决策者常说,吃不饱饭是进步的重要阻碍之一,但很少有人将改善营养作为行动焦点。如此,世界正在丧失一个巨大的机会。

世界粮食日(10月16日)和国际消除贫困日(10月17日)提供了一个澄清有关营养的一些错误概念的机会。这是至关重要的一步,因为我们每一个人都可以为在2030年消灭一切形式的营养不良做出贡献——这也是联合国可持续发展目标2(SDG2)。

But citizens should stay calm and not give governments the tools they increasingly demand to win the “battle” against terrorism, crime, or any other technically avoidable misfortune that life throws up.
