In "A hill of beans," The Economist reports that "the average American wastes 1,400 kilocalories a day." For those who would argue for industrial solutions to our food and agricultural problems because 'how else will we feed the world?,' I would argue that we first tackle problems of waste. Over-consumption leads to the problem of waste production . . . as pointed to by the study by "Kevin Hall and his colleagues at the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases," as reported in the article linked above.
