Students reduce carbon footprints after studying food system’s environmental impact

A UCLA-led study published in the journal Climatic Change found that college students who learned more about the environmental impact of their food choices made dietary changes that are better for the environment.

According to Jennifer Jay, the UCLA professor who led the research, if the entire U.S. population made the same types of changes in their diets, the reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, the major cause of climate change, would be significant.
