Interesting, and mostly no surprises, but ...

Sweden? Really?

OK let's see.

USA, because of a few people with vast wealth.
Russia because of even fewer people with somewhat less vast wealth + extreme poverty in the hinterlands.

WTF with Sweden? I mean I knew the social democrat thing might not be all it was cracked up to be, but they were the guys all non-Commie leftists said we should imitate.

Up there with the USA and Russia and billionaires and oligarchs? :o

Il problema di mezzogiorno very much in evidence.

I'd love to see comparison with today, particularly Southern Italy.

Also, is that an Island of relative illiteracy around Paris, or is my French geography off?

Paris is further north - in fact the splodge of high literacy is around Paris. The lower literacy splodge is around the the Limoges - Brives-la-Gaillarde area, which is pretty rural.

Infographic: How to spot sugar on an ingredients list

It's not always easy to spot sugar on ingredients lists, because it can come under lots of different names. To help you avoid eating too much added sugar, our infographic shows 50 names for sugar you might come across.

A comment:
50 Shades Of Sugar

It’s no secret that Western society is going through a health crisis, mainly caused by the steep increase in processed food consumption and a truly unbalanced diet. Industrialization has brought us so many good things, but obesity due to excessive sugar intake isn’t one of them, and apparently, it’s a trend that doesn’t seem to lower with time!

The USDA reported in 2014 that the average American consumes around 160 pounds of refined sugar per year, give or take 10 pounds. Even if you *think* you definitely are in the minority of this statistic, think again: if you do the math, eating between 150 and 170 pounds of sugar per year means that you’re consuming around 30 teaspoons on a daily basis. You don’t eat THAT much, you say? Well? every can of soda holds 6 or more teaspoons of sugar, meaning that with 4 sodas per day, you’re already on your way to consuming more than a hundred pounds of sugar this year. More so, sugar hides not only in obviously sweet foods, like sodas and cakes but also in weird places like pasta sauce, ketchup, and bread!

Sugar consumption has obviously increased in the last few years. It’s amazing that only 200 years ago in the eighteenth century, the average American only consumed between 4 and 7 pounds of sugar per year. Apparently, if we continue on this sugar-eating trend, by 2030 all 50 states could have obesity rates of over 40%. Not sure whether what you're eating has sugar? See if sugar is hiding under one of its other names.

Blackstrap molasses is cane juice with nearly all the sugar taken out.

Allegedly good for what ails you. :)

I doubt Biden will be a two-term president. I'll say that much.
