In today’s world, food is often times throw away for no apparent reason. In grocery markets around the world, food is simply thrown out just because it is passed the sell by date. Milk being a major example of this is being wasted every day. But how are these sell by and expiration dates determined. They have been simply decided randomly by someone and there needs to be a change. I am despised of the situation. In a study done posted by LA Times, average people taste tested expired milk and they came to a conclusion that there was little to no difference. This disappoints me because of not only milk, but all the other food that is going to waste. There needs to be a change and all this food cannot be simply thrown away. The food is perfectly okay and can benefit many people.
