Why food ?

“Food is required by every human on earth, yet the types of food we eat and how we produce and consume it vary tremendously.  It is therefore a nearly perfect subject for anthropology, since it can be examined in terms of human biology, culture, and social status across time from our evolutionary ancestors to the present day. . . .”  -- Ryan Adams, IUPUI Anthropology
