全球化對政治、經濟、文化、社會都帶來不同程度的影響,至於個人方面,最明顯莫過於飲食習慣的改變。以往不同文化、地域的人依賴本土的農作物,因此大家的主食、糧食各有文化性。時至今日,大部份的國家都被西方飲食文化影響,全球的食糧愈來愈接近。棕櫚油、大豆、玉米等都成為了更多國家的重要食糧,其中一個主因是棕櫚油、大豆、玉米都是加工食物的主要生產材料! 而加工食物在全球一體化的進程下已滲透全球每一角落。

You’ve probably heard that the food people eat worldwide is getting more and more homogeneous. As the Western diet spreads, we are relying on just a few staple grains and meats. This is a commonly held belief — yet it’s never been authoritatively studied.

Now it has. The results were just published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (one of the more prestigious journals) — and it turns out that this commonly held belief is … totally right, and actually more dramatic than some expected.
