A new study from the Harvard School of Public Health find that it costs $500 more per year for a person to eat a healthier diet than being on a diet of less healthy processed food.
That equates to about $1.50 more a day which includes more nuts, fish, fruits, and vegetables.
The study also find that it is more profitable for food companies to produce processed foods under the current government industrial paradigm.
The researchers suggested that unhealthy diets may cost less because food policies have focused on the production of “inexpensive, high volume” commodities, which has led to “a complex network of farming, storage, transportation, processing, manufacturing, and marketing capabilities that favor sales of highly processed food products for maximal industry profit.” Given this reality, they said that creating a similar infrastructure to support production of healthier foods might help increase availability—and reduce the prices—of more healthful diets.
So meat is suddenly bad for you? Expect nothing less from Harvard to bend and twist meats nutritional value.
