Are we wasting the good stuff?
Popular Science Article: Americans keep buying veggies and then throwing them away!
"earlier studies found that of the millions of tons of food that the United States produces each year, between 31 and 40 percent is wasted—more than any other country in the world."
"Spiker’s work takes the existing research a step further to look at what types of foods—and what nutrients—are most frequently wasted, and by whom. She found that while retailers and consumers waste an equal number of calories, consumers waste far more nutrients. We’re not throwing out snack cakes, but we are throwing out spinach."
