Has anyone else noticed how little diversity there is in what we eat? Lets take the humble potatoe, how many different kinda of potatoe have you eaten? If you are anything like me 3 or 4 is the answer, But did you know there are actually 445 total different species of potatoe and over 12000 different varieties. And don't think this is unique to the potatoe, ask your self how many different kinds of food ave you eaten. My bet would be way under 100. It seems as the world gets smaller so does the list of food we eat. Really when was the last time you ate a mango or a nachie or even a pear? In fact the USA only has 3 major crops that make up a large majority of crops grown. Corn, wheat and soybean. Of corse these are grown on the 'superfarms' . The main reason for this is ofcouse price steming from the green revolution, it would cost alot more to grow lots of different types of crops at that magnatude and of corse in america the major crops are subsidised by the government. The same goes for Meat aswel, there is cows, sheep, pig and sheep, what other meat is there in mass production? Yes you do get osrtrach farms but that is really minor. When was the last time anyone here ate a goat or a buck and im not even mentioning dogs eventhough they are perfectly eatable? Is every one fine with that? I find it ironic in the land of the free thier really isn't that much freedom in what you eat. Maybe im wrong and people here do have a wide diet, but im willing to take a bet that for most it is quite limited. Is everyone fine with that? Or is food diversity another thing no one really care about?
