Food wisdom defining today’s advantaged class

Where once the problem was lack of supply, today a majority of humans are physically diminished by the too many calories they are consuming. Food knowledge and discipline on how and what to grow, prepare and consume for a healthy body are extremely rare wisdom today. This gives those who have it a significant advantage. This is not so simple as wealth or social class. Lots of people with ample means are eating themselves into ill health and teaching their kids how to do it from birth.  The good news is that when we show children how to eat for strong health, the habits tend to stay with them for a lifetime. The opposite is also true.  Health is foundational to productivity and quality of life, what could be more important than this?
