Is Junk Food Cheaper Than Health Food?

Mark Bittman of the New York Times has written a fascinating article about the economic impact of junk food and how shortsighted we often are in our consumer decisions. Natural health is about avoiding junk food and the negatives associated with it. This article is right on point in de-bunking some myths around the financial side of the argument.

Some Highlights from the Article:

In general, despite extensive government subsidies, hyperprocessed food remains more expensive than food cooked at home. You can serve a roasted chicken with vegetables along with a simple salad and milk for about $14, and feed four or even six people. If that’s too much money, substitute a meal of rice and canned beans with bacon, green peppers and onions; it’s easily enough for four people and costs about $9.
