I guess I'm not surprised...

As some/most of you know, I have become increasingly interested in "agri-business," and how the industrialization of food has affected what, how, when, where and why we eat. The chart below, from yesterday's NY Times, compares the average food intake in 1970 versus 2006. I was surprised to see the red meat consumption has declined a quarter of a percentage. Perhaps the most startling increase however, is the fats. Wowzers.
