Blayze Padgett's curator insight, February 20, 1:12 PM
This article relates to AP Human Geography because it talks about food taboos. In AP Human Geography, we learned that many cultures have different outlooks on food and food taboos. In my opinion, food taboos are different for all cultures because everyone has different beliefs. For example, other cultures eat cats and dogs while I see them as a pet.
Ethan Johns's curator insight, February 21, 12:08 PM
Since this article talks about taboo foods it is related to AP Human Geography. In AP Human Geography, I learned that people eat weird foods and they think our foods are weird. For example, other cultures eat cats and dogs while Americans see them as a pet. In my opinion, food preferences are different for all people because everyone has different beliefs.
