People always assume that when a poor person says that junk food is cheaper, they're talking about McDonald's, but what they really mean is that unhealthy food like Ramen ($.17 a piece) and canned vegetables ($.80 a piece) are a lot cheaper than fresh fruits and vegetables and organic, grass-fed beef: and when they're feeding three kids, those unhealthy alternatives are a lot less expensive than healthy food, amirite?
