Is Healthy Food Too Expensive?

I get a lot of complaints saying what you're proposing is unfair because the poor people can't eat healthily for the same price percentage of their income is lower and that's certainly true, but they can eat less. The most basic problem we have is eating too much. And at the end of the day, the reason you're obese is you've been eating way too many calories everyday.

It's true. The calories are a lot cheaper now. It's true corn is found in all sorts of calories no argument about that, but at the end of the day the one that you certainly can do is never more extensive less than treat more. And it is also not entirely true that it is more expensive to eat healthily.
