Food Subsidies

This is an interesting graphic. I don't know enough about why the subsidies for veggies and fruits are so small... perhaps those who farm vegitables and fruits are better off not relying on the government for protections... or perhaps the meat and dairy farmers are facing unfair competition from overseas. Anyway, the Feds once again don't appear to be forward looking enough to put our money toward developing the diet they recommend.

Not that I would eat what Congress told me to eat anyway...
