Okay, here's one for you, farm subsidies make people fat. No, I didn't just make that up. The connection or lack thereof between farm subsidies and the overweight has been the subject of a four year study on farm policy and obesity. Thanks to people like Michael Pollan, who work very hard pushing their political food agenda through such claims, the amount of money wasted on studies such as this one is in the millions. The results of this particular study are not surprising, scientists have concluded that farm subsidies have not been a significant contributing factor in the rising problem of obesity in the United States, there must be other things that are responsible. This is not one of those slap your forehead why didn't I think of that moments. Instead, it amounts to more of a "well duh" moment. The fact that we even give credence to such claims in the form of federally funded studies is something that really needs to be researched. There isn't one single food item that we can pinpoint as the major contributing factor in the cause of America's obesity problem. It's just not that simple, but bless their hearts they keep trying. Here, let me save you several millions in research in the study on obesity; eat less, exercise more.
