nutrition disparity between economic classes

Great article from Newsweek about the dietary differences between those who can afford good food and those who can't.

I can tell you that in my area, supermarket food is definitely more expensive and of lower quality than what is available in the major metropolitan areas about 100 miles away. In the summer, the farmer's market is a wonderful option, but for six months of the year there aren't a lot of choices other than packaged mass produced foods and imported fruits and vegetables.
