Cheap food dilemma

You know what else causes obesity and keeps the weight on? Cheap food does. A new review out in A Cancer Journal for Clinicians points and finds one factor fueling the obesity epidemic: Americans now have the cheapest food available in history. A whopping two out of three Americans are now overweight or obese and the rates have been climbing steadily over the past several decades and aren’t slowing down. Various other factors are snack food, automobiles, television, fast food, computer use, vending machines, suburban housing developments, and food portion size. But after a close look at the available evidence, the authors say widespread availability of inexpensive food appears to have the strongest link to obesity. Truth be told, we are spending a smaller portion of income on food than any other society in the history of the world. Americans spend well under one-tenth of their incomes on food.

And we feed this crap to our family??
