"Diet-related health consequences of a UK-US trade deal"
by Freund, Florian and Marco Springmann


Abstract
The potential implications of a UK-US trade deal on UK’s diets is a highly discussed topic. Fears on hormone beef, chlorinated chicken and GMO food is on the agenda again. But besides these potentially harmful food safety aspects, a deal with the USA could also impact incomes, the relative availability and prices of particular food groups, and through that impact the die-tary composition in the UK. Previous analyses have shown that the increases in trade costs that are expected for a British exit from the European Union (Brexit) could increase dietary risks at a population level (Springmann and Freund, 2017; Seferidi et al, 2019). The question we will be focusing on in this study is whether a trade deal between the UK and the US could alleviate some of the detrimental dietary impacts Brexit could be associated with.
