Whose interfering?

From a recent Marion Nestle post: 


It is not an accident that five dollars at McDonald’s will buy you five hamburgers or only one salad. It is not an accident that the indexed price of fruits and vegetables has increased by 40% since the early 1980s, whereas the indexed price of sodas has decreased by 30%. Right now, agricultural policies support our present industrialized food system and strongly discourage innovation and consumption of relatively unprocessed foods.


I just love this, and it cannot be said in too many ways. Those who say they want government out of our kitchens either have no clue, or they've been bought off by the corporations that benefit from the long-established impositions government has already. Why are those incursions not only OK, but sacrosanct?

Here's the rest of Nestle's post.
