Are Healthy Diets the Lowest in Greenhouse Gas Emissions?

Mar 20, 2013

Not always, according to the March issue of "Dairy Research Insights."

A university researcher in Scotland said unintended consequences could occur if food recommendations for healthy diets and environmental impact are considered in isolation.

Another study showed that switching to lower-fat dairy foods when losing weight could have unintended consequences as well. Male participants consumed fewer dairy foods overall rather than switch to lower-fat versions and lowered their nutrient intake.

These findings and others are selected each month by members of the Dairy Research Institute's team of scientists. Read the March issue here.
