  1. Joe S. says:

    I think a high IQ probably correlates with better health outcomes across the board.

  2. Ken says:

    Does anyone know why bad food is cheaper?

  3. Linda Gorman says:

    Does anyone know how to define bad food? Unless, of course, the food is spoiled and contains pathogens?

    Otherwise, this push to stigmatize some foods as bad and some as good is just another power play, one in which government gets to tax the heck out of food and tell you what you can eat.

    There really isn’t much science to support the fat is bad, sugar is bad, salt is bad, mantra. Nor is there much science suggesting that organic or unprocessed is good and processed food is bad.

    Attacking cheap food is like attacking cheap gas–someone wants others to pay more because he considers their lifestyle second class.
