Living on a planet with many diverse countries means that we have quite the variety of foods, lifestyles, and cultures. Our differences are what brings this world together.

Some of these diets may seem strange, yet there are people who are more than willing to go through the hassle. From breathing air to having a bug inserted into your digestive tract, there are certain diets that may not appeal to everyone. But that doesn’t mean that we can’t explore what the rest of the world does!
