Dr Martin Bloem from Johns Hopkins Centre for a Livable Future shares insight from research on diets and carbon footprints.

Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland, has released new research which reveals that eating meat is actually better for the environment than going completely vegetarian.

Speaking to Eusebius McKaiser, Dr Martin Bloem says fighting the climate crisis by avoiding meat may ignore the needs of poorer countries.

A vegan diet is very interesting because of many people in the world, if you are poor you are actually a vegan. You eat a plant-based diet but that is not based on a choice, it is because of poverty.

Dr Martin Bloem, Johns Hopkins Centre for a Livable Future

There are many scientific papers that show that women who are pregnant and on a vegan diet can actually deliver a normal baby but they need to take supplements.
