As the argument goes, cheap, processed, mass-produced food is bad for your health, and bad for society. But at a time when people are trying to spend less on everything, paying more for anything (even healthy food) is a hard sell. Should the food we eat be better quality, and cost more? If so, who decides, and who should pay for it?

An interesting op-ed in the LA Times challenges the locavore-bulk-is-bad movement.

If food does get more expensive, it’d probably be a lot harder to eat on $15 a week or $50 a week, let alone $1 a day.
