The great global food gap

A study of what 30 families living around the world eat in one week shows the huge gulf between the diets of different nations.

Crisps, biscuits and chocolate treats dominate the shopping basket of the Baintons from Britain who spend an average of 155 every week to feed their family of four.

Other items on their shopping list include ready meals such as baked beans as well as convenience goods like ketchup, teabags and mayonnaise.

These pictures of their weekly food shop shows the sharp contrast between the eating habits of those in the UK and others around the globe.


More pictures here!!!
The great global food gap: Families around the world photographed with weekly shopping as they reveal cost ranges from 3.20 to 320 | Mail Online


Britain: The Bainton family of Cllingbourne Ducis spend 155 on their weekly food shop. They list their favourite foods as avocado, prawn cocktail and chocolate fudge cake with cream



Japan: The Ukita family from Kodaira City with their 200 weekly food shop


Egypt: The Ahmed family from Cairo who spend around 43 a week on food


Germany: The Melander family from Bargteheide who spend around 320 on their weekly shop



America: The Revis family from North Carolina spend 220 on the weekly food shop which includes several fast food take-aways



Canada: The Melansons of Iqaluit, Nunavut Territory, who spend around 220 a week on food

Maybe someone could add the other countries if interested.

damn, that articles says published in 2013 but I feel we've seen it before.

"A study of what 30 families living around the world eat in one week shows the huge gulf between the diets of different nations."

haha, and then the writer picks "The Melansons of Iqualuit" in the middle of butt-fuck nowhere to represent the "average" Canadian family. This writer is definitely cherry picking his data!

and where's the Siracha?

Dumbest shit I've read.

Seriously?

"Hey, Let's show the prices of what people spend on groceries on a weekly basis, not using a standard currency or factoring relative prices/wages."

Dumb article, writer, and OP.

This article is nothing but an attention grabber for idiots.

Let us all agree. Beer is universal in all diets, gluten free or not. Unless you're zionist, then you subsist exclusively on children's tears and myrrh.

To be fair, half the towns they picked their examples from don't necessarily resemble the stereotype of the given country they're from.

That said, that Nunavut purchase looks pretty similar to mine.

Yes, I find the different ethnicities and having a look inside these homes also interesting.

I would like to be adopted into this household

France: The Le Moines of Montreuil who spend around 269 every week on food


United States: The Caven family from California who spend around 103 a week on food

Another unhealthy American family.

Because we differ in ethnicity, changing our old generational diets to new ones might not be as compatible.


Some peoples gut bacteria put them at more risk of clogged arteries in this study.

A study in the New England Journal of Medicine says foods like eggs and meat can increase the risk of heart disease because of the way they are digested.

Those pictures are from a journalistic photography set, not a "study"

It was never intended to show more than some amusing anecdotal portrayals of how different families eat around the world. They don't represent ANYTHING other than that.

The American and Canadian family both spent 220, but look at how much more food they got

This is good that you question it because although the study looks very credible, with a shiny heart blocking video and famous host Charlie Rose, it may very well be flawed!



Red Meat and TMAO: Cause for Concern, or Another Red Herring?
Quote:
For example, say a study shows that eating processed meats like bacon and hot dogs increases your risk of heart disease.

Let’s also say, as the healthy user bias predicts, that those who eat more bacon and hot dogs also eat a lot more refined flour (hot dog and hamburger buns), sugar and industrial seed oils, and a lot less fresh fruits, vegetables and soluble fiber. They also drink and smoke more, exercise less and generally do not take care of themselves very well.

How do we know, then, that it’s the processed meat that is increasing the risk of heart disease rather than these other things—or perhaps some combination of these other things and the processed meat?

The answer is, we don’t. Good studies attempt to control for some of these confounding factors, but inevitably some will not be controlled for.
