Dietitians demand better food in remote areas
Northeastern communities are struggling with the fact that they are livi바카라 검증 사이트ng in a food desert – areas that cannot feed themselves on staples like rice and wheat, and thus have low nutritional requirements – in places like the Himalayas and China. So many people there are still struggling with the reality of limited agricultural resources and lack of transport.
In the U.S., one of the major problems facing rural communities is that of rural food deserts. This is defined as areas where, for lack of convenient transportation, farmers can’t sell produce into the urban areas.
According to the USDA, about 19 percent of rural U.S. households are food deserts, which means that their food budget for the week is lower than most suburban Americans’ budgets. (To illustrate how serious the problem is, consider the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2013 estimates of household food waste – the amount of food waste in food deserts – for every person in the country: 17,500,000 pounds. That amounts to 20,000,000,000 pounds of food.)
But a team of researchers from Ohio State’s College of Agriculture, Horticulture and Food Science has shown that urban and rural communities across America are equally susceptible to food deserts. According to their findings in a study published in the April 22 edition of the journal Science, the average rural resident consumes more fresh 우리 바카라fruits and vegetables, potatoes, meat and dairy, and grain than a suburban resident. In addition, only 20 percent of the rural population eats meat.
In addition, according to the report’s lead author, Dr. Andrew Pizarro, rural households have lower levels of fresh fruits and vegetables than residents of major cities.
The team suggests that more attention is needed to food deserts in both cities and towns, and that efforts should be made to increase food supply in rural areas.
“As urban areas develop, we will see people living in urban areas living more healthy lifestyles that could have a greater impact on our environment,” said co-author Dr. Charles Puzon, assistant professor of environmental and food policy at Ohio State. “The focus needs to be on food supply, particularly food in those areas where there may be limited access to food.”
The team, however, also reported that it was not clear w카지노 114hether urban areas in general are as affected by food deserts as rural communities. They suggested that the study was not rigorous enough to determine whether the rural population is affected more or less by food deserts, and if so, by how much
