What People Eat

click for larger version

Interesting look at diets of different countries, how many calories people eat, of what type of foods, and how it has changed over time. Makes me wonder what the ecological/NPP footprint of these diets are and which country obtains the best health with the lowest footprint.

Some other cool charts and images on agriculture in the article, but unfortunately they look a lot better in the paper version of the magazine than they do online.
