Food Stamps For Sodas

One would think that food stamps would be used for food and drink that nourishes the body. That includes fruit and vegetable juices but, certainly, not sodas. I don't suppose we should be surprised the "soda lobby" objects to the restriction of food stamps for sodas but it is a commentary on the culture and health status in the U.S. This includes the broader issues of agriculture policy and the structure and function of health insurance. I only wish it were possible for the government to get back to the basics to support optimum health status for all Americans. That would require a transformation that may be starting with the community health initiatives across the country. Mayor Bloomberg could be on the right track. Let's see.
