    is that fast food and processed food are so incredibly cheap due to our government favoring the companies that make and distribute that crap.

    Whereas, healthy food like non-GMO whole grain and plant based food are comparatively expensive.

    I just started juicing and damn is it expensive!  

    The food subsidies are out of date.

      as non-GMO whole grains.  There's no robust evidence of adverse health effects.  If seriously undernourished any whole grain is better than the crap people usually eat.
