I understand that the economy drives off of tax payers money. Of course our debt and tax money helps make the world financially go round. What I don’t understand is that doctors and health officials push that we need to eat a healthier balanced diet, and this in return allows us to stay fit and live longer. Which makes sense. Well if this is the case, how come you can’t make the healthier foods affordable?! Example, health food stores like Whole Foods and Mariano’s just to name a few, sell a wide variety of organic food options that have less added preservatives, calories and ingredients that aren’t natural. If you compare the price of the healthier foods they are much more expensive and to grocery shop for a family of four minimum in a health food store you are going to spend hundreds of dollars. This can really add up.
Thus, you see the poorer populations that do not have access to healthier foods and health food stores. If we are promoting what’s best for the human population, why not make the high calorie, unhealthy foods at a cheaper price and make organic and healthier meals cheaper?? Example fruit and veggies smoothies are 6-10.00, organic veggies are typically 1-2.00 higher in price. Organic milk and eggs are much higher in price including meats and protein product.
What’s your thoughts?! Why do health officials show health concerns when it come to dieting and food sources but make sell healthy food choices at a higher rate? Thanks for reading!
