Can peanut butter save the world and boost your health?
Some people think it’s a start. The Sierra Club magazine this month highlights the Web site www.pbjcampaign.org, which claims eating peanut butter is a good way to go green. The site, which vows it’s not connected to the peanut industry, notes that livestock account for 18 percent of all greenhouse gas emissions. Compared with a burger, a PB&J sandwich saves as much as 2.5 pounds of carbon dioxide, 280 gallons of water and 50 square feet of land, according to the magazine.
