The Fiscal Toll of Eating Crap

The Fis­cal Toll of Treat­ing ‘Lifestyle Dis­eases’ — NYTimes​.com:

Corny as it is to say so, if we can put a man on the moon we can cre­ate an envi­ron­ment in which an apple is a bet­ter and more acces­si­ble choice than a Pop-Tart.

More can be said about the sea change my diet has under­gone in the last year, but suf­fice it to say that eat­ing bet­ter is patri­ot­ic, pro­gres­sive, con­ser­v­a­tive, and apo­lit­i­cal — oh, and tasty — so if you’re not doing it already, get on it.
