Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Food prices are indeed a mechanism that links obesity and poverty.(1) As incomes decrease, energy-dense grains, sweets, and fats become the best way to provide daily calories at a manageable cost.(2) Added sugars and fats can be inexpensive, flavorful, satisfying, readily accessible, and convenient,(3) but these ingredients can also provide minimal nutritional value. One factor behind rising obesity rates may be lower diet cost.(4) (Am J Public Health. Published online ahead of print November 15, 2012: e1. doi:10.2105/AJPH.2012.301098).
