Man is foremost a creature of habit and strong beliefs and disbeliefs. Some of these are part of our inheritance and some are formed and formulated by us as environmental reactions. In each part of the world food trends vary considerably. They do so because the underlying causes vary. A country experiencing a large population explosion will go a different way to one of moderate population growth. Large immigration will influence the pattern; also great differences in the social strata have considerable effects on the lines of development.
