I had not planned on posting today (except for River of Stones) but came across this link at Doris Nygrin’s blog, Truth With Doris, and felt compelled to share it. In a very simple, straightforward way, the viewer is shown the disparity in diets around the world with accompanying comments…brief statements about the weekly food costs for families in different parts of the world. I urge you to take a look.

Amazing post! Thanks for the link. I sometimes forget about the Daily Kos.
Thank you for stopping by, Kathy.
In addition to the disparity the pictures indicate why African Americans have a disproportional illness over sugar diabetes and overweight related illness. Perhaps contributes to shorter life span as well. All Americans would benefit from adapting the fruit and vegetable diets avoiding the red meat and such as bacon and sausage. Italians love their bread and a grain based diet has been traditional since even pre Roman times.
I found these photos quite revealing. And sad.
Thank you for sharing this. I usually follow The Daily Kos but somehow have not lately.
Thanks for stopping by, Linda.
As is said: a picture is worth a thousand words… An eyes opening post, for sure. Thanks for sharing it!
Thank you Sorin, for stopping by. I hope people will stop and think when they buy their groceries . . . and maybe donate to a food bank or a charity that gets food to those who don’t have.
Fascinating, Cecelia.Thank you for sharing this with us.
Thanks for stopping by, Barbara.
