This is- by a LANDSLIDE- the most thoughtful, broad, and relevant article I have read at SP, ever. Well played, girls.

What a great article! I feel empowered that my choices, even as one individual, may influence the current state of health in this country. Sometimes you feel that you don't have the power to change the way things are, but every "vote" can add up to change. Thank you for the reminder.

The government doesn't need to TAX junk food and subsidize healthy food. We live in a Free Market Economy, and what people SELL is determined by what people BUY. We need to educate people about buying HEALTHY food. That would get more produced. IF you don't buy JUNK FOOD, they will not keep making it.

The government should put a high sales tax on junk foods and use the money to subsidize healthy foods like whole wheat bread, fruits and vegetables, fish, olive oil, etc. If someone buys cola, they will pay double what they pay now, and if someone buys milk, they will pay half the price. People will make changes to save money and eat a healthier diet, the country's health care costs will go down, and even poor people will be able to afford healthy food. Lobby the new government!
