What the world eats: Time Magazine's Startling Expose from "The Hungry Planet"

The following series of photo essays are not new, and are from the book entitled "The Hungry Planet" featured by Time Magazine. They are worth posting, however, as rising food prices steadily bring revolution to country after after country around the globe, as millions starve while millions others are too fat to leave their couches, and as droughts and toxic processed foods endanger human health and existence.

While observing these three photo essays, please take note of the following things:

1) The quantity of food possessed in the developed countries compared to the underdeveloped countries;
2) The quality of food that the two poles possess, such as the amount of boxed, bagged, processed and "fast" food that appear in the developed diets as opposed to the wholesome meats, vegetables and fruits that dominant the diets of the underdeveloped nations;
3) The markets available to the two poles, consisting of shelves of boxed, bagged and processed food in the developed markets, and basic, wholesome ingredients in the open air markets of the developing world.
