I find it interesting that there is very little meat--or other animal products for that matter--on most of the pics. Lots of produce and grains--iow it seems most of the world seems to follow primarily a plant-based diet.

That's because raising animals for meat is really expensive. Much more economical to raise them for their byproducts: eggs, milk, cheese. The wealthier a nation is, typically, the higher the meat consumption.

I was just appalled at all the junk food that seemed to be in every country that has a good relationship with the West.
