The Cycle of Wealth, Education, and Food Consumption

Apr 26, 2008 Published under Environment, Global, Health

The most humble eat grains and seeds.  They don’t have anything else.  They live off the earth.

The poor eat refined starches, rice, beans.  They can’t afford anything else.

The luxury many strive for is perceived to be meat.

Then the cycle gets completed.  As people learn more about nutrition and the environment, they start avoiding meat, they start avoiding refined sugars and starches, and they steer back to grains, seeds, vegetables and fruits straight from nature.
