How your diet affects global climate change

STUDY OF THE WEEK:HOW YOUR DIET AFFECTS GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE

Food accounts for 13% of all Greenhouse Gas emissions.

Red meat and dairy are responsible for nearly half of all greenhouse gas emissions from food for an average U.S. household.

Replacing red meat and dairy with chicken, fish, or eggs in your diet for one day per week reduces emissions equal to 760 miles per year of driving.

Switching to vegetables one day per week cuts the equivalent of driving 1160 miles per year.
