I chose to highlight the areas below because they all tie into the food sources in each country. Wether it be some people get more food which leads to obesity, or people get less food because of the scarcity of arable land left for crops. They all tie into the foods of the Germans and Americans and their daily diets.

These three data points influence what the people eat in Germany because if there is more people than the crops can feed people will obviously go hungry. But, it all depends on the available land to plant crops to feed the population and to keep them healthy and stay away from obesity. It influences what the people eat in the US because if their is very little arable land left to plant crops, there will not be as much healthy food or food in general for the population to eat. This will lead to obesity eating unhealthy food and starvation for those who the crops can't feed.

This statistic is relevant because depending on what the different foods available in each country effects the health of its people. If their are more healthy food choices in Germany than United States that may be why the obesity rate is much lower. Or it can just be simply exercise, but food has a main play in the obesity rate.
