Junk Food Not Cheaper Than Healthy Food

from cattlenetwork.com: It doesn't cost any more to eat healthy food than it does to eat junk food, a government study found, casting doubt on the popular belief that many people can't afford healthful foods. The study, released Wednesday by the U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) Economic Research Service, found that foods like beans, carrots, milk, and yogurt are actually less expensive than ice cream sandwiches, cinnamon buns, and soda.
