Thinking

I'm still mulling this over, but I'm sick of the links clogging my browser.

I'm thinking about the connection between farm subsidies and their encouragment of corn and soy production with the weight problem of the US. Foods high in corn/soy and their byproducts/distillates seem to be a factor. Couple this with the effect that they have on foods grown with these products (i.e. farm animals slaughtered for consumption). Would modification of the subsidy program to encourage production of other types of foods be worthwhile? How do we encourage local eating and sustainable/appropriate farming?
