High nutritional quality is not associated with low greenhouse gas emissions in self-selected diets of French adults

submitted by: Nicole Darmon
Background: Healthy diets are supposed to be more environmentally friendly because they rely mainly on plant-based foods, which have lower greenhouse gas emissions (GHGEs) per unit weight than do animal-based foods. Objectives: The objectives were to estimate the GHGEs associated with the consumption of self-selected diets in France and to analyze their relation with the nutritional quality of diets. Design: For each adult in the national dietary Individual and National Survey on Food...
