Graph (map) of the Day: World Fat

Today the Huffington Post published a map by the World Food Program showing the caloric intake by country.  The map takes the average caloric intake and represents that with the geographic area that country would consume.

This map along with the news that hunger is on the rise in the U.S. with 49 million Americans going hungry in 2008, reminds us that while some people have too much food, too many people go without.
