Session 5: Nutrition and the Consumer. Chair Mary Ann Binnie.

Many people in the world are malnourished, either lacking sufficient calories and nutrients, or consuming too many calories through poor diets. Meat and livestock products provide a highly efficient source of nutrition, but red and processed meats have been (wrongfully) accused as contributing to bad health outcomes. Consumers are often confused as to what research and labelling can be relied on so that they can make informed food choices.
