USA Today, December 19, 2018, 4:21:17PM It’s not just the weather that’s warming up in the winter.
A new study shows that the amount of water used to store food, as well as the amount the body can hold, is also increasing.
That’s according to a new report from the University of Colorado Boulder and the National Institute of Standards and Technology.
The research, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, examined water use by people at three locations in Colorado, Texas and Georgia.
While the water used by the people at each location ranged from about 1,600 to 4,400 liters per person per day, the water that was being stored at the same time was 1,400 to 3,000 liters a person per year.
So, what’s happening with water usage?
The study looked at water used at all three locations and found that for the average person, they used 1,700 liters of water for each person per month, which is roughly the amount they use to maintain their weight.
But the researchers found that the people who used more water were using more food, and they were also consuming more calories.
The researchers suggest that this increase in water use may be linked to the growing number of people using frozen meals.
“The people who had the greatest increases in water consumption were those who were using frozen dinners or those who did not have a choice to eat at home, as a result of the growing demand for packaged food,” lead author Dr. Michael Kuznick, a researcher in the School of Human Nutrition and Dietetics at the University at Buffalo, said in a statement.
“For example, those who used the most water were eating more packaged meals.”
The study’s findings may also have implications for how we store food in the future.
The study suggests that while we may not need to worry about storing all our food in a single freezer, we may need to be more mindful of how much water we use to store it.
“These findings could help us design better freezer designs and better strategies for managing water use,” Kuznik said.
“Future studies will look at how these patterns may influence food storage and waste.”
The researchers plan to continue their research in 2018 and 2019.
