John, you might like this article. It is a study that would suggest that eating what is currently thought as most healthy and good on the environment (lots of fruits and vegetables) creates no less greenhouse gases than a more traditional diet that relies on more meat products. http://ajcn.nutrition.org/content/early/2013/01/30/ajcn.112.035105 In a nutshell: Growing fruit and vegetables doesn't produce as much greenhouse gas as raising cattle or livestock, the study confirms, but people who eat a primarily plant-based diet make up for that by eating more of those foods.
