7 Foods Labeled By Science As Benefiting Us, Not The Environment

Not all foods are created equal. When we look at the carbon footprint, some foods produce greater amounts of greenhouse gas emissions than others.

There are other factors considered in labeling foods ‘bad for the environment’ that science has explored.
