I’m really interested in food studies/controversies and I want to create a data visualization regarding all the research that has already been done, perhaps in an effort to persuade the viewer to think about their eating habits. My goal isn’t to shove a specific belief down one’s throat, but mainly to stimulate a discussion.
Specifically, I want to create a visualization regarding the food consumed by Americans — broken down into different categories, from very detailed to very broad. Potentially I can also include data that may be influenced by different types of consumption (ex. food availability).
