5. More than anything, this is telling of which nation eats out the most.

Eating out is like a national obsession in much of America and a middle/lower class symbol of success (or high debt).

As Muriel_volestrangler explained above, these numbers are for foods purchased for consumption at home from retail grocery outlets. We also have a relatively efficient food transport chain via rail and trucks, making all sorts of foods available in KY that are from Central and South America, for example, and they are inexpensive.

As climate change takes charge and natural resources diminish, this whole structure will change and those that can produce locally will win the survival lottery.

KY............
