Bill Belew has raised 2 bi-cultural kids, now 34 and 30. And he and his wife are now parenting a 3rd, Mia, who is 8.
American is number one.
China is catching up. But shouldn’t.
Americans eat more junk food than any other nation in the world.
If China continues on its current trend it will pass America up in the amount of junk food that the nation as a whole consumes.
By 2015 China will eat 107 million tons of packaged, on-the-go food. Can you say additives, artificial flavoring and other chemicals. America will eat 105 million tons.
But … China has 4 times as many people as America.
So, overall the average Chinese will still generally eat a more healthy diet than the average American … maybe.
It is most likely that the majority of the junk food eaten by the Chinese is eaten by Chinese in the cities. The population of Chinese in the cities is probably equal to the total or less of the population of America. Somebody else can do the math.
Point: America need not always be proud to be number one in the world.
And China or any other country for that matter does not need to try to beat America at everything.
Can anybody say we are trying harder to NOT be number one?
