Drivers of meat consumption.

Drivers of meat consumption. Appetite. 2019 Jun 10;: Authors: Milford AB, Le Mouël C, Bodirsky BL, Rolinski S Abstract Increasing global levels of meat consumption are a threat to the environment and to human health. To identify measures that may change consumption patterns towards more plant-based foods, it is necessary to improve our understanding of the causes behind the demand for meat. In this paper we use data from 137 different countries to identify and assess factors that influence meat consumption at the national level using a cross-country multivariate regression analysis. We specify either total meat or ruminant meat as the dependent variable and we consider a broad range of potential drivers of meat consumption. The combination of explanatory variables we use is new for this type of analysis. In addition, we estimate the relative importance of the different drivers. We find that income per capita followed by rate of urbanisation are the two most important drivers of total meat consumption per capita. Income per capita and natural endowment factors are major drivers of ruminant meat consumption per capita. Other drivers are Western culture, Muslim religion, female labour participation, economic and social globalisation and meat prices. The main identified drivers of meat demand are difficult to influence through direct policy intervention. Thus, acting indirectly on consumers' preferences and consumption habits (for instance through infor...

This study aimed to assess whether negative pressure dressings reduced complications in patients undergoing bilateral reduction mammoplasty with randomisation of a side to negative pressure and standard care, fixation strips, on the contralateral side. This allowed patients to act as their own controls. This study found a significant reduction in the rate of wound complications but used a wide definition for what constituted a wound complication. This finding is mirrored in existing work with studies showing that negative pressure therapy is a cost-effective intervention. Further work is required to validate this finding a...

Authors: Riva G, Mancuso V, Cavedoni S, Stramba-Badiale C Abstract INTRODUCTION: Neurological diseases frequently cause adult-onset disability and have increased the demand for rehabilitative interventions. Neurorehabilitation has been progressively relying on computer-assisted programs and, more recently, on virtual reality (VR). Current reviews explore VR-based neurorehabilitation for assessing and treating the most common neurological pathologies. However, none of them explored specifically the impact of VR on multiple cognitive domains. AREAS COVERED: The present work is a review of six years of literature ...
