The US population grew to more than 4 billion people in 2012, up from about 3.2 billion in 1990.
But we’ve been eating a lot of food, according to a study by the US government’s National Center for Health Statistics.
According to the study, Americans eat 3.4 times more food than they did in 1990, and by 2030 they will eat more than 3.9 times more.
The US government uses food prices as a proxy for income.
It calculates food prices per $100 of disposable income.
People spend an average of $17 per week on food, up more than a million dollars since 2000, according the government.
That’s because the US has more people and businesses and businesses use a wider variety of food than other countries.
For example, the USDA classifies meat and poultry as “vegetarian” while dairy, egg and meat are classified as “fiber” in the US.
But it doesn’t distinguish between grains or whole grains.
