In an August 2011 evaluation of the impact to the planet of different foods, US-based Environmental Working Group finds that lamb, beef, cheese, pork, and farmed salmon are the most harmful concerning greenhouse gas emissions, with all meat and dairy products considered highly damaging due to their requirements for large amounts of pesticides, chemical fertilizers, fuel, feed and water resources.
