Study: One-third of food produced goes wasted
A study released Wednesday by the UN Food and Agricultural Organization reports that one-third of the food produced in the world gets wasted. The annual loss of food is said to be $750 million.
The AP reported the study states, "food waste hurts the environment by causing unnecessary carbon emissions, extra water consumption and the reduction of biodiversity as farming takes over more land."
