"The reason that eating well in this country [U.S.A.] costs more than eating poorly is that we have a set of agriculture policies that subsidize fast food and make fresh, wholesome foods, which receive no government support, seem expensive. Organic foods seem elitist only because industrial food is artificially cheap , with its real costs being charged to the public purse, the public health and the environment." -Alice Waters, from "Slow Food Nation", an article in the September 11, 2006 issue of The Nation, page 13
