Nina Domingo: The air quality-related health impacts of food in the US
The challenge of feeding a growing and increasingly affluent population has spurred interest in identifying dietary choices and food production practices that improve human health and protect the environment. Recent research into the environmental impacts of the food system has focused on climate change, on land, energy, and water use, and on water quality, but less is known about how food affects air quality. This is despite agriculture being a major contributor to air pollution, and reduced air quality being the largest environmental risk to premature mortality in the United States and globally. In this talk, I will discuss my recent research that examines the air quality-related health impacts of US agriculture in fine spatial- and source-detail, and identifies producer- and consumer-side solutions that can improve health outcomes. The findings of this work can inform decisions of food producers, processors and distributors, policymakers, and the broader public interested in improving the health and environmental outcomes of the food we eat.
