A new study by researchers from the Carnegie Mellon University has found that lettuce is over three times worse in greenhouse gas emissions than eating bacon.
The study analysed the per calorie impact of different foods in terms of energy cost, water use and emissions.
It also found that eating only the recommended “healthier” foods prescribed by the US Department of Agriculture increased a person’s impact on the environment.
According to The Independent, Paul Fischbeck, study co-author said “Lots of common vegetables require more resources per calorie than you would think. Eggplant, celery and cucumbers look particularly bad when compared to pork or chicken.”
