    New analysis assigns emissions to individual food items rather than broad food groups for greater accuracy; assesses impact of diets for sample of 212 adults.
    Emissions associated with non-vegetarian diets were 59% higher than for vegetarian diets.
    Emissions associated with men’s diets were 41% higher than for women’s diets, primarily due to greater meat intake.
    People whose intake of saturated fats, carbohydrates, and sodium met WHO-recommended levels had lower emissions than people who exceeded recommended levels.
