A frail balance for meat consumers
The Argentinian is a great consumer of animal food products such as beef-steacks and dairy products though the average income is 8 times lower than the income of a French man.
The staple diet of an Argentinian contains 34% of animal calories. Fruit and vegetable consumption is at a low rate and fish is not included in this staple diet.
Argentina has large field surfaces good for extensive cattle breeding and for cereal extensive agriculture,  both producing a high food production rate..
