Watch your diet 本文作者: Samantha Hawker 期号:523 THERE is a famous saying from the French politician J.A. Brillat-Savarin that goes: “Tell me what kind of food you eat, and I will tell you what k

ind of man you are.” It can be easy to not really think about what you eat. For example, whenever you go into a supermarket to buy a drink, it is all too easy to pick up an ice cream or a chocolate bar as well. You might not even really want these sugary goodies (好吃的东西) but sometimes their bright, nice packaging (包装) can be too hard to resist (抗拒).

Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver hopes to improve the diets of people around the world.AFP

So, in our special food issue we will be showing you why you should really pay more attention to what you eat! Food not only influences our health and appearance (外表) but it also says a lot about our beliefs, customs and personalities. The first article will look at the way fast food is leading to obesity (肥胖). The celebrity chef, Jamie Oliver, has made it his mission to spread awareness (意识) about healthy eating. In an inspiring (启发人的) speech for TED, Jamie Oliver told the world that in the 18 minutes that he did his chat, four Americans would die due to the food that they ate! Obesity is also a growing concern in China. As China Daily reported in February, the number of obese people under the age of 18 in China has reached 120 million. Jamie has been working for 10 years to try and fight this problem. Learning about food is important not just because of health problems but also because of food safety, waste and shortages (短缺), in addition to the advancements (进步) in science which lead to genetically modified (转 基因) food. Don’t worry – we’ll get you up to date on all these topics in our special edition! We’ll also introduce you to the different ways that countries across the world respond to food. For example, do you know that the largest food item found on any menu is the roasted camel? It has been served for several hundred years, often stuffed (填满) with chicken, lamb, egg, fish and rice! Hopefully by the time you finish reading this edition, you’ll be much more concerned about the food that you eat. As Oliver says, food is what “binds (联系) us to the best bits of life”. It is important that we appreciate (喜爱) it! By Samantha Hawker, special to 21st Century
