Why is it so expensive to eat healthy?

I was buying some soy sauce the other day, when I noticed that the “low sodium” version was $2 more than the “standard” version. You mean it costs more to use the healthier version, really?

McDonald’s has a a dollar menu, where you can eat your fill, going to Jamba juice will cost you a minimum of five dollars and you will not be full. A bottle water at the movie theater will cost you $5 and a soda $2.50!

Organic vegetable at the store are separated from the non-organic, and I do no go anywhere near the organic section because you get half the amount of food.

It is cheap to eat unhealthy, it is expensive to eat healthy; heck there are no neighborhood gyms and PE anymore so kids are growing up unhealthy. Kids are getting “plugged in” instead of being sent to summer camp, because the camps are too expensive.

Time to ask ourselves: how serious are we as a country about health?
