    This is so patriotic but in the same time so false. The right way to show it is per capita where US is number 15 (Finland it first). Not a very respected place for the counjtry how pretend to lead the world and having such an Obesity epidemic

    I’m not sure what you mean by “the right way to show” a ranking. For many (but not all) topics on Ranking America I have entries that show both total numbers and per capita numbers. Either ranking can be correct, depending on what question is being asked. For this particular entry, I was interested in showing total milk consumption, not per capita milk consumption.
