The foods that nutritionalist recommend we eat more of – veggies and fruits – are considered specilaty crops and are not eligible for direct Government support.
Soybean, corn and wheat farners receive billions of dollars in aid. Many of these crops end up going into feed for livestock, sweeteners or cheap oil for fast food.
For every dollar the USDA spends on nutrition education, the food industry spends $24 on ads and marketing. Yikes!
