This graphic is really hard to read! I’m pretty sure that there’s a correlation between poverty and obesity, because poor people can’t afford protein, and have to eat cheap starches like spaghetti.

A stack of ordinary graphs would be even easier to read.
Sure, it’s pretty, it’s got nice colors, but it doesn’t get its message across effectively.
