"The Real Cost of Cheap Food"

This week's Time magazine cover got my attention of course; while one of the biggest critiques of the organic food industry is it's cost, one must ask themselves what's the real cost of cheap food on their health. And Time just does that. With a number of fascinating interactive features included in the web article, and a sad graphic in the magazine about how many calories a dollar can purchase (1,200 calories of potato chips as opposed to 170 calories of fresh fruit- thanks Big Food for royally screwing the American public!), this is worth a read for anyone interested in food politics... and might just sway you to start buying more organic food, if you don't already do so.
