What the World Eats

My friend Craig sent me these links to a series done by Time/CNN. Family portraits where in addition to the family you get a spread of what they eat with the added information of how much they pay for what they eat. Fascinating.

All the Western family's eat mostly packaged food; soda pop, frozen pizza, potato chips, etc. It's not until you get to very poor third world families that all the food is actually food: grains veggies and maybe a little bit of protein. It would seem the privilege of living in the first world is the ability to buy plastic containers filled with chemicals you can't pronounce mixed up with corn syrup and hydrogenated fat, God we are so lucky!

It's ironic to me how the supposedly advanced West has it so wrong. It's why for the first time ever in the history of the world in America you have poor people who are obese and undernourished.
