Federal Subsidies

How Federal Food Subsidies Lead to Your Weight Gain

Federal subsidies for commodity crops are subsidizing junk food additives like high-fructose corn syrup by the billions according to Apples to Twinkies—a new report by Iowa Public Interest Research Group (Iowa PIRG). Meanwhile, farmers growing fresh fruits and vegetables barely get any subsidies thereby making these healthier alternatives more expensive and unaffordable for most people. To understand how the federal government is contributing to the problem of obesity, let us take a look at the subsidies that go in to the food production.


Federal Subsidies

•Meat/Dairy -- 73.8 percent subsidy
•Grains -- 13.2 percent subsidy
•Sugar/Oil/Starch/Alcohol -- 10.7 percent subsidy
•Nuts/Legumes -- 1.9 percent subsidy
•Vegetables/Fruits -- 0.4 percent subsidy

As you can see, just 1.9 percent subsidy is provided for healthier choices such as nuts and legumes and 0.4 percent for fruits and vegetables. As a result, a salad can often cost you more than a Cheese Burger!

Alarming Trends

Obesity is common, serious and costly in the United States currently. According to the CDC, more than one-third of U.S. adults (35.7%) are obese and another third are in the overweight category. No state has met the nation's Healthy People 2010 goal to lower obesity prevalence to 15%. The number of states with an obesity prevalence of 30% or more has increased to 12 states in 2010. In 2009, nine states had obesity rates of 30% or more. In 2000, no state had an obesity prevalence of 30% or more. Obesity-related conditions include heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and certain types of cancer, some of the leading causes of death.

        Confusing Choices

With over 20,000 books written on this topic, many of them with flimsy scientific basis, and very little education in the medical school school curricula where 94% of the general physicians with no education on nutrition, the Obesity Epidemic has been progressing rapidly. As Obesity is a chronic medical condition like any other, it needs obesity medicine trained physicians to tackle the complex metabolic, emotional, social, nutritional and psychological aspects of this condition.
