the calorie war


living in New York for a few days, showed me more and more of the Inequality aong mankind.

Here is a war against calaories and carbohydrates, with everyone trying to cut down, and every pack of food giving the nutrition details, not for people to look for high nutrion values, but lower, and lower. Lower the better. They talk about the Three White Killers. Salt, Sugar and Flour.

In other countries, among other people, the war is to find enough Calories and even Carbohydrates. Even the children have to eat food with the lowest values, not because they prefer it, but because they can't afford high nutrition value food.

The  sad part of this situation is that the money people earn to continue overeating, is most often earned by depriving the food of the people in poor countries, one way or the other.
