    Nutrition

    Oxfams Global food index just came out. The Netherlands is on top which is interesting. I wouldn't rate Dutch food particularly highly, but combined with 40% of the population cycling they mostly get enough exercise and keep their obesity and diabetes rates quite low.

    If you could look at this data in terms of food processing it would make more sense.

    So this is a charity's websites data? I didn't really look too far in to it so I apologize if I'm coming from the wrong standings.

    Right now I'm noticing something peculiar about the USA according to this data.

    Second column from BEST overall they rank ok in "enough to eat" Ok fine.

    Affordability and food quality they are ranked well. Diabetes and obesity second highest.

    It's clear the USA is served cheap to produce manufactured "food product" Food quality must assume there just isn't mold inside the "package" because it's clear that's how to produce affordable food.

    Food processing brings on the calories AND a cheaper price. Who'd of thought foods would have been "developed" and "streamlined" through the assembly line. Interesting.

    It's gotta be hard to have North America on the same metric as subsuharan Africa... The criteria they chose for food quality was food diversity and access to clean water.

    Exactly nothing. Nutrition deals with input only.

    Nothing, but it has a lot to do with the obesity and diabetes rates, which are also mentioned in the graphs.

    I clicked on this thread because it was labeled "Nutrition"!

    I was lied to.
