Diet in global communities
The food we eat is also dictated by the place that we live in. Why, for example, are potatoes more commonly eaten in England than in China? The primary reason is that rice cannot grow in England given the climate (weather, temperature, humidity, etc.). Therefore, the English diet developped around what could be eaten locally. As our world continues to become more globalized (more people coming in contact via internet, travel, etc.), food is able to be traded between countries which creates more variety in our diets. However, most people still have their diets primarily made with food which can grow close to home. Please download the PowerPoint to investigate further.
