Provide next generation healthy crops

What if?

What if we could fix our production systems so they could provide crops that meet the nutrition and consumer preferences of our global population?

Health impacts

Obesity takes a greater toll on wellbeing for young people. Our projections suggest that a 15-year-old male who experiences obesity (BMI between 35 and 40 kg/m2) could gain 8-11% wellbeing (0.08 to 0.11 WALYs) if he reduced his weight to a healthy level, whereas a male adult (age 40+) would only benefit from a weight loss if he has a BMI greater than 40. Similarly, a 15-year-old woman who experiences obesity could gain 0.12 WALYs with a healthy weight reduction, while women older than 40 would gain 0.04 WALYs from a healthy weight reduction.

Community impacts

Individuals who live with a partner who has a healthy BMI should experience no loss of wellbeing, according to our predictions. However, at a BMI of 30, partners lose 0.03 WALYs on average; at a BMI 40, the loss doubles to 0.06 WALYs; and at BMI 45, partners lose 0.11 WALYs on average.

Stability impacts

Individuals who live with a partner who has a healthy BMI should experience no loss of wellbeing, according to our predictions. However, at a BMI of 30, partners lose 0.03 WALYs on average; at a BMI 40, the loss doubles to 0.06 WALYs; and at BMI 45, partners lose 0.11 WALYs on average.
