Economy

It’s true!

Researchers are saying that if Americans cut their caloric intake and lost weight the energy crisis that is currently taking place, could be averted. That sounds too good to be true, but it’s not.

On average, a normal American eats between 50% and 100% more calories than recommended.

All of those calories have to be produced, shipped and stocked. By the time you pay the plants to produce them and the truckers to drive them to their destination and the people at the store to put them on the shelves it’s no wonder that things cost so much. If we used less food we’d have lower prices and we’d have more land for other things, instead of cultivating it all (which also costs money) to be used to grow more food.
