By David A. FahrentholdFor the first time, researchers have a way to quantify the impact of food processing and food quality on Americans’ health and well-being.
The Food and Nutrition Board of the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) published the first comprehensive study on the food industry’s impact on American health and the economy in May.
The study, titled “The Impact of Food Processing on the U.S. Economy,” looked at economic outcomes, food prices and the impact on human health.
It’s the first-of-its-kind study on this topic, and the authors call it a “major step forward” in understanding the impact food processing has on our food supply and how it contributes to our overall health.
The researchers surveyed more than 50,000 Americans from April through October.
Their findings revealed the impact that food processing is having on the economy, but it also revealed the impacts on people’s health.
“We find that people who use food processors have lower life expectancy, higher rates of diabetes, lower cholesterol, higher blood pressure, lower levels of cancer and a higher risk of heart disease,” said Dr. David H. Bahler, a co-author of the study.
For example, the researchers found that the impact was greatest for women.
Food processors also have an impact on the health of children, the elderly and people with physical disabilities.
They have an even greater impact on older adults and people in rural areas, the study found.
The authors said the data was “very interesting” and a “critical step forward in understanding how food processing impacts the economy.”
The authors also concluded that food processors are one of the fastest-growing sectors in the country.
The industry has an annual economic impact of $1.4 trillion.
They said the industry is “increasing in size, scope and impact.”
What does that mean for you?
Food processors are growing fast.
The American Beverage Association estimates that the industry will account for a whopping 25% of the nation’s beverage market by 2020.
The impact of a food processing plant on the American economy is a significant concern.
“The data suggests that, while food processing increases the demand for the products we consume, it also makes it more expensive,” Bahler said.
“This leads to lower profits for the processors, which means lower wages and less opportunity for the American worker.”
The researchers found an interesting relationship between food processing costs and the number of people living in poverty.
The food processing industry has a lot of workers in low-wage jobs, Bahler explained.
These workers have the most to lose by living in conditions that are unsafe and that don’t provide them with a livable wage.
The researchers found this is true for both women and men.
Food processors have an effect on the country’s food supply.
The NAS found that more than half of the workers surveyed in the study were employed in the food processing sector.
“That is the most likely explanation for the strong relationship between wages and employment in the processing industry,” Bahlers said.
The average worker was making $9.13 per hour.
This was the highest of any sector.
The data also showed that the cost of food has a significant impact on people in poverty, Bahlers added.
The cost of a pound of meat was $4.10.
That’s roughly $1,400 per year.
And that’s true for the entire economy. “
One is that when food prices are low, consumers have to pay more for it.
And that’s true for the entire economy.
So when food costs go up, consumers spend less.”
Food processors also affect the U,S.
The U.s. government, which has a major food processing program, spent $2.6 billion in food processing in the year 2015, according to the NAS.
Thats an increase of almost $10 billion from the year before.
The authors of the report found that these costs have increased over time, and food processors may be one of those sectors where they are increasing their expenditures.
Food processing has an effect that affects the environment.
The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) estimates that food, chemicals, pesticides, fertilizers, and other wastes are used in food processes around the world.
The waste from food processing goes into landfills and contributes to climate change.
Food processing is also a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions, the FAO found.
Food processed in the United States is a major part of the U.,S.
food supply, with nearly 60% of all food consumed in the U in 2015.
The United States accounts for half of all the world’s processed food, with food processed in China, India, Vietnam, the Philippines, Mexico, and elsewhere accounting for the other half.
The food processing industries, which account for more than 80% of total food imports, account for the largest
