Food culture?

Why is there nothing in this article about the importance in human culture and society, being the center of social events, food based holidays like Thanksgiving etc.? Gobberpooper (talk) 03:52, 17 March 2012 (UTC)

Food can make you fat if you eat too much of it. But if you dont eat enough of it you die.

Please change the Finnish lang link from fi:Ravinto to fi:Ruoka. The former means "Nutrition" but the second is "Food". (talk) 12:57, 2 May 2012 (UTC)

As it is still missing from the following list of international agencies and organizations working to monitor food safety and quality, we feel the European Food Information Council should be added. Please find in capitals our proposed modify:

Food safety and food security are monitored by agencies like the International Association for Food Protection, World Resources Institute, World Food Programme, Food and Agriculture Organization, International Food Information Council AND EUROPEAN FOOD INFORMATION COUNCIL . They address issues such as sustainability, biological diversity, climate change, nutritional economics, population growth, water supply, and access to food.

food that is good for health has nutrients in it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:35, 29 September 2014 (UTC)


Fungi should also be included in the Food definition article. "The Kingdom Fungi includes some [very] important organisms, both in terms of their ecological and economic roles. By breaking down dead organic material, [fungi] continue the cycle of nutrients through ecosystems. In addition, most vascular plants could not grow without symbiotic fungi that inhabit their roots and supply essential nutrients."

"Living things are organized for study into large, basic groups called kingdoms. Fungi were listed in the Plant Kingdom for many years. Then scientists learned that fungi show a closer relation to animals, but are unique and separate life forms. Now, Fungi are placed in their own Kingdom."

Fungi includes foods like mushrooms, truffles and morels. Yummy!

Initial images

Various foods
Foods from plant sources

It looks to me that the images of food presented may, from the perspective of large sections of the world's population, be a Food, Glorious Food fantasy. The images are great but don't think that the content is representative of what most people are likely to regularly see. I don't think content is balanced and, if there aren't objections, whether a change or an addition of images would be best. GregKaye 10:48, 20 May 2015 (UTC)
