Americans should "cancel" breakfast because it is not needed and should instead have brunch all week long, Dr. Mehmet Öz insists as the U.S. struggles with an epidemic of obesity.
Öz called breakfast an "advertising ploy" during an interview with celebrity news website TMZ, further adding "a lot of the dogma that we were fed for decades came out of advertising."
Supermarket revenue during the first half of 2019 rose 3.4 percent compared to the same period last year.
Foodstuffs, especially frozen foods and snacks, accounted for most of that increase.
The quantity, or volume, of sales increased much less, as supermarket chains limited the number of special offers sold in order to boost profitability.
