"Palm oil production and health spillover effects among South, South East and East Asian nations: A fully integrated regional Macroeconomic-Environmental-Demographic-health model"
by Jensen, Henning Tarp, Marcus Keogh-Brown, Richard D Smith, Sanjay Basu, Soledad Cuevas, Alan Dangour, Shabbir H Gheewala, Rosemary Green, Edward Joy, Nalitra Thaiprasert and Bhavani Shankar

Agriculture and food systems are inextricably linked to health, the economy, and the environment, and palm oil is one of the most prominent commodities for all of these policy areas. Economic benefits from palm oil include high yields, low production costs and advantageous qualities for food processing. However, as a leading source of dietary saturated fat, it has been linked with negative health outcomes and, sometimes, with negative environmental effects. To capture this mutual dependency and complex interactions we have developed a novel integrated approach.
