America Has Subsidized Itself Sick

with one comment

Check out this interesting exposé from FearLess Revolution. The above chart shows our federal government’s remarkably imbalanced subsidization of animal protein.

GOOD recently featured a story hypothesizing that if the government subsidized healthy foods, it would actually help kids lose weight (surprise?).

Food for thought.

  1. I think getting rid of all subsidies would probably achieve the same thing. Less expensive from the beginning to grow just the plants and not the animals that feed on the plants, ya?
