Spanish Researchers Analyze Human Eating Carbon Dioxide Emissions

GreenTracker| Spanish researchers have analyzed their diet, concluding that every person emits the equivalent of about two tons of carbon dioxide a year from the time food is produced to when the human body excretes it, representing more than 20% of total yearly emissions.

It’s the first time that human excrements, not only animal excrements, have been analyzed as a contributor to carbon dioxide emissions. via Science Daily

Given the fact that Americans eat much more per person than the Spanish, our carbon dioxide production is presumably much higher.
