Conference 2019: Interview with Benjamin Allès


Benjamin Allès is a nutritional epidemiologist and researcher at Université Paris 13. He reviews the different behavioural trends among people who have adopted vegetarian diets. 

From a research standpoint, we see on the one hand vegetarians, and on the other, individuals who have adopted plant-based diets and well-balanced and varied eating habits. At the same time, not everyone who eats plant-based foods necessarily has an adequate diet. Benjamin Allès believes it is necessary to describe behaviour within different types of vegetarian diets.
