  •  Side Effect of Ubiquitous Cheap Subsidized Sugar? (2+ / 0-)

    (please don't misread my comment as assuming I know anything whatsoever about the cause of the diarist's or above commenter's disease)

    Free grazing on public lands, zero environmental responsibility for beef and corn production, government subsidies for the entire corporate welfare industrial food chain.  All resulting in flood of food every bit as poisonous as any cigarette ever sold, resulting in an epidemic of obesity, diabetes, and heart disease which at todays level is just the tip of the iceberg.  Our health system is facing a disaster because of the hidden costs of these programs.

    We need to not only help those with the general population statistical inflictions of disease like the diarist and previous commenter but also to take the painful measures necessary to prevent them to begin with.  It took generations of misery to put down the tobacco lobby, we can't afford generations of misery before resolving our food issues.
