I came across this article this morning and thought it was fascinating.
The Mediterranean diet gets a lot of attention, and I have to admit, I can understand why - it's a delicious and healthy way to eat, and it makes sense. It's sad to see that obesity is rapidly becoming a universal epidemic.
The comment about diets becoming meat-heavy when income goes up is also interesting. On the flip side, the article seems to indicate that lower-income communities are seeing a decrease in the amount of fresh vegetables and fish that characterize a Mediterranean diet. It seems you can't win for losing.
McCuisine is going to be the death of us all, I think.
