Shifting to a healthy diet is not only good for us, but it also saves a lot of precious fresh water, according to a JRC study.

Compared to existing diets, the water required to produce our food could be reduced by between:

  • 33% and 55% for healthy pescetarian diets and
  • 35% and 55% for healthy vegetarian diets.
