Countries and Calories

This interactive map shows you how many calories each country consumes on a daily basis.  Not surprisingly, the US, Canada and Europe are all dark, dark green, while Africa and Asia are blue or gray.  When you roll over a country, it provides the break down of those calories from carbs, proteins, and fats.  Interesting stuff.

Hans Rosling Makes Statistics Interesting
