According to this article, “…subsidies encourage commodity growers to plant an oversupply of low-priced corn and soy, which is processed into high-calorie high-fructose corn syrup and soybean oil and fed to feedlot animals bound for burgerville.”

Why does the health department preach moderation and then seemingly force-feed us an over-abundance of high-calorie/low nutritive food? Why is virtually EVERYTHING corn-based in one way or another? Why does nearly everything have to have high-fructose corn syrup in it? Why has soy been shoved down our throats as well (literally – but that’s a whole other subject I will take on when I start my food stuff blog)?

The article above raises a lot more questions than it answers, but they are good questions. And I plan to follow up and see what Diane Feinstein says/does about it in the future, if anything.
