"A government study found that though many people say cost prevents them from eating more produce, consumers can get the recommended three servings of fruits and four servings of vegetables daily for just 64 cents." So let's not kid ourselves - it's simple laziness, nothing more, that prevents people in this country from eating right.

But this part is kind of odd: "That's a lot of good nutrition for only 64 cents, only 225 calories and less than 1 gram of fat," said the study by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. "That leaves 88 percent of their food dollar left for the other three food groups." OK, first of all, I'm not sure why a "food dollar" apparently equals US$5.33, but more to the point, WHAT YEAR IS THIS, USDA? The [four] food groups? Did whoever wrote up this report completely sleep through the 1990s or something? Or is it an intentional attempt by the meat-&-dairy-lovers to pretend that meat and dairy are still nutritionally important?
