Healthy food should be subsidized and made freely available all over the globe.Processed food manufacturing modernized and continuously monitored to produce quality products..

I think that anything that helps a community be a better one is always a good cause & in helping others we also find we are helped in some way, just in the act of doing good for others. Teaching healthy eating habits & how to cook healthy food & budget food, will help people in many ways, one of them being a more healthy weight, less medical bills & Dr's visits, more energy & positivity because one feels good etc etc.

I do think the organic foods are very expensive - the fruit and veg normally is fine and the competition now between supermarkets as helped to cut costs down - however, i think the health foods are expensive and the s.markets to increase their price here - it would help if it were less.

We certainly don't stop eating healthily because it's costly, we just vary our meals; pasta with salads, beans with rice, less and less meats, more vegetables and fruits in variety as well. Making our own, instead of packaged. Making portions less as well.

If we want to change the market emphasis, then, we have to change what WE do! There's no other way and it's guaranteed success. If EVERYBODY stopped patronising multi-food combines' produce for just ONE month, it would have an enormous effect and we then just need to keep up the pressure til the providers either get the message or close down and starve themselves - wouldn't that be great? It's OUR call.

Amen to Keith. But there is a certain perversity in us that want's to give in, close our eyes and eat that donut or hamburger. I can and do boycot GMO foods as well as the companies that distribute them when I can find them, but sometimes it's difficult to know if the soybeans in some product I would like to buy are GMO beans. (And I don't think my craving for potato chips will EVER completely go away.)

I bet the REAL top reason is that people like the taste of unhealthy foods better. I eat a pretty healthy diet, but I still like the taste of a donut better than a salad.

There are true chemical reactions in the brain that make us want the junk food over the good stuff.

I think you summed it up nicely, Gary. Just look at ads for Fiber One or whatever; they feel the need to emphasize that they taste good, so obviously there is this puplic perception that healthy food does not taste good. I couldn't vote in the poll, because none of the choices applied to me.

If I save up a few dollars to treat myself now and then, I don't take it to Safeway for lettuce and a tomato. I get my son to take me to McDonalds where I get a delicious burger, fries and a drink for the same amount of money. Added to my meal, is the enjoyment of companionship with my son, a car ride which I rarely get, a meal in a different environment than my dismal one room where I live, entertainment value. That's a lot to get for $5.23!

If you had a clue of all the garbage that many of the fast food chains put in their food especially McDonalds you would never eat fast food again.
