Food Consumption in the World

(Grams per Person per Day)

Daily diets vary considerably around the world. This chart shows the quantities of food consumed per person in differnt countries. There are six categories of food, which are prduce, grain, dairy/eggs, meat, sugar/fat and other. You can select to compare different categories.

As we can see, there are a lot of information. For example, American people eat more food than people in other countries. Chinese people and Mexican people eat more grain.

This chart shows the daily calories of people in different countries as well as the obesity rates in different countries. Along with the first chart, we can find the connections between the food people eat and their obesity rates.

People in USA have the highest daily calories which results in the highest obesity rate. Also, we can see that people in USA eat more food than people in other countires.

China has the lowest obesity rate. If we choose "produce" in the first chart, we can see that Chinese people eat more produce than people in other countries.

This is the Diabetes prevalence (% of population ages 20 to 79) of different countries. Although there are some other factors (e.g. gene, weather) that affect the data, we can still find some connections between the Diabetes prevalence and the food people eat.

For example, the Diabetes prevalence of China is twice higher than Austrilia. If we choose "Grain" in the first chart, we can see that Chinese people eat more grain than Austrilian people, which results in higer Diabetes prevalence. Also, countries whose people eat more sugar or grain have higher Diabetes prevalence.
