The Ass Backward Food Industry

Having just watched Food, INC and then coming across this article where they are paying people to lose really just blows my mind how ass-fucking-backwards this society is. How about making good healthy food more affordable in the first place so that chips, fast food and pop aren't the only option for lower income families. They go to extensive, costly lengths to make more food, cheaper (and subsequently less healthy)....all these manufactured and genetically modified foods end up being extremely cheap compared to whole foods...lower income families live on this shit and then 'they' end up having to pay people to lose weight, pay for their ill health, set up costly education programs and the whole damn cycle is just ridiculous. I'm really blown away by the conflicts of interest by which this industry is run. That movie was a definite eye opener.
