I found the section regarding obesity and food choice within Human Evolution, Diet and Nutrition the most engaging. I feel, as if the media could be misleading in most instances. The book sees us “living in a time characterized by soaring rates of obesity, heart disease, hypertension, and diabetes” that has resulted for unhealthy diets in America. The diet that most people seem to be following would be the “westerns” diet that depends on livestock and dairy products. Where growing countries have increasing income also have increasing demands for foods that were limited before. For instance, in the article Global food crisis: The challenge of changing diets they are also speaking of obesity in the US being an issue. They state, "seven out of ten states with the highest poverty show are among the 10 with the highest rates of obesity". I feel growing issue has to do diet choices and not merely as much with genetics. The selection of diet is related to the income of each family group and the affordability of foods. More so, processed foods are more affordable but carry high in saturated fats, calories and sodium and fresh food are expensive. Thus, the media in industrial countries tend to promote unhealthy fast foods rather than healthy fresh foods leading to the demand in agriculture to decrease within the years to come.
