foods for so-called hygienic reasons, such as onions and leeks, which
can cause bad breath. There are also some types of foods that are
considered uncivilized. Traditionally, the people of England have never
eaten horses, dogs and other carnivores or insects. Slowly, the eating
of meat is looked on as uncivilized. As part of the shift away from
