Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro has suggested people should “poop every other day” as a way to save the planet.
His comment came in answer to a journalist who asked him how to combine agricultural development and protecting the environment.
Mr Bolsonaro recently came under fire after official data showed an increase in deforestation in the Amazon.
He then sacked the head of the agency that reported the increase, accusing it of lying about the problem’s scale.
Mr Bolsonaro’s comment came after the journalist quoted reports saying deforestation and agriculture were responsible for a quarter of the planet’s greenhouse effect.
“It’s enough to eat a little less. You talk about environmental pollution. It’s enough to poop every other day. That will be better for the whole world,” he said.
