The Pizza People
Americans Who Can't Cook

US MED Gives BackSome nutritionists are discouraged by the results of a survey done for the Tufts University HNRC Cardiovascular and Nutrition Laboratory. They worry that all their healthy cooking advice is wasted on more than a quarter of Americans.

The survey conducted by Impulse Research revealed that more than 28 percent of the participants say they don't cook because they don't know how.

About half of the survey subjects said they don't cook because a spouse or partner does it, and 25 percent said they don't cook because they hate cleaning up afterward.

More than 21 percent said they never cook because they don't have the time, and 66 percent say they don't cook because they hate to visit the supermarket, which they say takes more time than any other household task.

At Tufts, the nutrition laboratory director says the study results show what they have known for some time: the importance of incorporating food preparation and purchasing skills into school curriculums.

Shopping, preparation and clean-up aren't very time-consuming if you plan ahead.

Preparing food at home is one of the best ways to get healthier meals.
