  • What the World Eats -- A Week's Worth of Groceries

    Not sure if this is accurate at all or where it comes from, but interesting to look at. Some countries appear to subsist almost entirely on processed food, e.g., Britain and U.S.

    To look at it it seems that the families shown are displaying the food that they ate. The question, I guess, is how typical are they?

        Amazing how many cultures had lots of soda pop. And yes, all the processed food.

          My guess. And let me emphasis guess. Is that they probably took surveys throughout the country, compiled data, etc. Got all the average foods and quantities and picked a family to take the picture with the food (if even really a family and not just hired models).
