Surprise, surprise!

The coolest thing about this story, beyond the basic notion that people eat better when better eats are in hand is that study was done while helping people who need help. The City subsidized vegetables through food stamps and measured the results!

Now they have evidence by which to make decisions about nutrition improvements! Amazing notion: we can make better decisions with better information.

The second cool thing is that just having a neighbor supermarket does not improve nutition!
