But they found that eating only the recommended “healthier” foods prescribed in recent advice from the US Department of Agriculture increased a person’s impact on the environment across all three factors – even when overall calorie intake was reduced.The experts examined how growing, processing and transporting food; sales and service; and household storage and use all take a toll on the environment for different foods.
"We usually look at proteins rather than calories, and as a general rule it is still the case that reducing meat consumption in favour of plant-based proteins can reduce emissions," he said.Vegans also do not use products that have been tested on animals, like make-up and skin creams.Vegans do not use products made from animal skins such as leather belts and shoes.Published in the Environment Systems and Decisions journal, the study goes against the grain of recent calls for humans to quit eating meat to curb climate change.Researchers did not argue against the idea people should be eating less meat, or the fact that livestock contributes to an enormous proportion of global emissions – up to 51 per cent according to some studies.According to the authors, the study analysed the impact on the environment from changing the average US diet to three new “dietary scenarios”.
Simply reducing the number of calories consumed, without changing the proportion of meat and other food types, cut combined emissions, energy and water use by around 9 per cent.
There’s also the fact that most (not all) vegetarians eat eggs and dairy products, which is something vegans don’t do.
With so many sub-groups of vegetarianism, it can all get a little bit confusing, so let’s clear it up, once and for all.
“That’s important for public officials to know and for them to be cognisant of these trade-offs as they develop or continue to develop dietary guidelines in the future.” Chatham House's Mr Froggatt, who was not involved in the research, said it was important to look at production methods as well as the complex issue of how land use is "likely to be impacted by changing diets".
"The key point I would agree with here is that you need to look at both the environmental and health impacts at the same time," he said.
