Future diets and the world’s expanding waistlines

LONDON, 15 January 2014 (IRIN) – Where is the best place in the world to eat? It all depends, as new calculations from Oxfam show, on what you mean by "good". Food in the United States is cheap, abundant, varied and tasty, but it might not be all that good for you – too much fat and sugar have led to 36 percent of Americans being diabetic and 46 percent obese. Japan's food, by contrast, is much healthier, but it's extremely expensive and not as varied.
