An apple a day…or maybe 5…

I love this little animated piece…

It points up one of the worst problems in US farm policy: corn and soy, prime ingredients in junk food, are heavily subsidized by the USDA. However, the food we really need to eat more of to be healthy, fruits and veggies, are not subsidized and often there are roadblocks put in the way for farmers who want to grow them. We need to change farm policy — and the SNAP program — to emphasize fruits and veggies, and de-emphasize King Corn and Queen Soy. Especially the GMO versions of same.

Eating clean shouldn’t be more expensive than eating dirty.
