The secret of the 'special offer' economy burger | Felicity Lawrence 25.1.2013 The Guardian -- World Latest
The packaging is the same, but the price is slashed. So it must be the same burger, but cheaper, right? Wrong Public health minister Anna Soubry is worried that poor people are fat these days. When she was a child they were taunted for being "skinny runts" you could spot a mile off, but now she reckons to be able to identify them not by how thin and hungry they are, but by their obesity. She has a point. Class determines how obese you are, how long you live, what sort of illnesses you are likely to suffer from. But if Soubry wants to use her role to do something about it, she might like to investigate the current burger scandal for a less judgmental view of why these health inequalities persist. Poor people eat a lot more cheap burgers and processed meats than more affluent households, who tend to choose more virtuous wholemeal bread and fruit and vegetables. This has more than a little to do with prices. A posh beefburger that is made of 90-100% beef will set you back about £1. An ...

Time to stand up to food waste (and walk more) | Michael White 10.1.2013 Guardian: Environment
The planet faces the prospect of having to feed 10 billion people by 2050. We need to stop throwing good food in the bin I had to throw away the outer layers of a cabbage last night, a victim of over-stocking in the run-up to Christmas, a personal defeat in the battle against food waste. Never mind, it was a rare loss and I ate the rest with a piece of salmon which my local supermarket had assured me should have been eaten or thrown away by 19 October. Such advice is mostly nonsense in my experience, though my wife has a more delicate constitution and ate a bit of fresh cod from the fishmonger rather than join me in the salmon. But a new – and disputed – report today suggests that Britons may be wasting half the food we buy in supermarkets , £10bn worth each year, at a cost of £480 per average household. It's shocking, isn't it and even the Daily Mail, which normally tries to blame anyone but the dear reader, hints in its report that we cannot blame the waste entirely on the marketing ...

by Betsy Blaney The Associated Press Published Jan 8, 2013 10:05AM MDT Lubbock, Texas • Attention, bread shoppers: A Texas company could have the answer to some consumers’ unwelcome discovery that just-purchased loaves contain mold. MicroZap Inc. claims its technology allows bread to stay mold-free for 60 days. The bread is bombarded with microwaves for about 10 seconds, which kills the mold spores, said chief executive officer Don Stull said. The process could eliminate bakers’ need for preservatives and ingredients used to mask preservatives’ flavor, as well as r... ...

Single men found to be rubbish at putting out the recycling 30.12.2012 Guardian: Environment
Women are doing more than their fair share of recycling, while single people living alone are less likely to recycle Men who live alone are the least likely to recycle in the UK, according to a study. As many homes come to terms with a backlog of discarded wrapping paper and empty packaging after Christmas, women will take on the most responsibility for disposing of it in an environmentally friendly way, according to new research. Results showed that single people living alone are less likely to recycle – only 65% did so, compared with 79% of mixed-sex couples. Of those living alone, 69% of women recycled some of their waste or unwanted items, whereas 58% of men were found to do the same. The study forms part of Understanding Society – the UK's biggest panel survey – and was funded by the Economic and Social Research Council and conducted by Essex University. More than 2,000 single men and women and 3,000 couples were asked about their housework routines, including whether they separated ...
