This is why you’re fat.

 

This article is jam packed with useful information about farm subsidies, and it has a plethora of links to other studies and articles!  Lobbyists working for healthier food spend the same amount in a year as lobbyists working against it spend in 13 hours?  Insanity.  Where is public accountability?

 

What do you think?  Are farm subsidies the definitive reason why 50% of Americans are projected to be obese by 2030?  Is it possible to have a crisis of laziness on this scale?  It seems to me as though we can’t just point fingers at peoples’ personal choices.  We have to look at what goes into those choices; what choices are people being given?
