Provokator Print Magazine / June - Let Them Eat Cake

I am so hungry a I could eat horse takes on a different meaning when it comes to Japanese ice cream flavors, while famous vegetarians such as Ghandi, Einstein and Pamela Anderson would find it nauseating. A child dies of hunger-related causes every five seconds, while more than a billion adults in North America and Europe are believed to be obese of overweight. Most Czech woman are unhappy with their bodies, and one half of U.S. women ages 18 to 25 would prefer to be run over by a truck than be fat. And for the cannibals out there, what goes better with red wine, black or white flesh?

"You Put What in Your Mouth?"

Whatever your native culture, the regions you've travelled to, or the religion you were raised in dictates you feast on, chances are the are some things you simply won't consume.
