While reading my RSS feeds on my lunch break, I found this quote in a Mark Bittman editorial in the New York Times about a possible soda tax:

“What you want,” says Kelly Brownell, director of Yale’s Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity, “is to reverse the fact that healthy food is too expensive and unhealthy food is too cheap, and the soda tax is a start..."

Uh... so the correct choice is to make all food expensive? How about we stop subsidizing cheap corn and start subsidizing fresh fruits and vegetables in urban areas instead?
