Zoë chats with Frédéric Leroy about the global demonisation of livestock farming
Diet and Health Today
In essence, Frédéric is a unique expert in being able to discuss the food supply from a global perspective – considering both human health and planet health. He understands the role that ruminants play from in factors from nutrition to topsoil and his understanding of the big food companies and other major organisations trying to influence what we eat, is second to none.
Professor Frédéric Leroy is a professor in the field of food science and (bio)technology in Free University of Brussels. We talk about: Prof. Leroy’s bioengineering background EAT Lancet’s planetary diet restricting meat and potatoes Why are we inverting our two million year positive relationship with meat? The Great Reset - on the cover of TIME Magazine The Great Food Transformation Accelerating rate of undemocratic top-down change The people involved - the WEF Maurice Strong’s Davos new age utopian transition mindset The motivation for The Great Reset EAT Lancet’s diet similar to macrobiotic diet - more grains, legumes, and veg oils, less red meat and eggs Urban Western consumers and food virtue signalling The true scope of EAT Lancet’s diet The shift wheel Taxes, restrictions, bans, Veganuary, making meat less visible, changing dietary guidelines etc. Comparison to authoritarian policies of the past Lack of dialogue and consultation within EAT How grain cultivation was how the first human elites controlled the population Why we need grassroots movements in communities to counter this Health of soil, animals, foods, communities, and society Regenerative agriculture is a mindset and a food system Why we need to fight hard against this by reconnecting with our food Maslow’s hierarchy of needs Frédéric can be found at: Twitter - https://twitter.com/fleroy1974 Previous podcast episode - https://paleocanteen.co.uk/professor-frederic-leroy-the-food-fight/ Ally can be found at: Twitter - https://twitter.com/paleocanteen Twitter - https://twitter.com/paleoally Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/paleocanteen YouTube - https://www.youtube.com/c/AllyHouston
Frédéric Leroy holds a professorship in the field of food science and (bio)technology. His research primarily deals with the many ecological aspects and functional roles of bacterial communities in (fermented) foods, with a focus on animal products. In addition, his interests relate to human and animal health and well being, as well as to elements of tradition and innovation in food contexts. The research is often of an interdisciplinary nature, involving collaborations with experts in microbiology, animal production, veterinary sciences, social and consumer sciences, cultural anthropology, and food history.
