4 Your Health: Throwing food out is a waste of nutrients and not taking care of ADHD

Posted: Updated:

A study from Emory University reveals racial differences among children with ADHD.

Researchers found African Americans were 22 percent more likely to stop taking their prescribed ADHD medications than whites. Hispanics were nearly 17 percent more likely to discontinue medication. Minority children were also more likely to completely stop treatment for attention issues.

Much of the food wasted in the U.S. is full of important nutrients lacking in many people's diets.

A new Johns Hopkins study calculated the nutritional value of food wasted by stores, restaurants and in consumer's homes.

Researchers found healthy foods, like fruits, vegetables, seafood and dairy products were the most likely to be thrown away.

The study found much of this waste could fill nutritional gaps in fiber, protein, vitamin-D and potassium.
