The cost of food has been going down since the start of the industrial age. Please look at the increasing cost of medical care. See anything fishy? They are pretty much inverse. As the price of food went down, and cheaper calories from added-value foods were made more readily available people began consuming more and more... crap.
This is the topic I am obsessed with: food access, local food economies, food availability, changing the subsidy structure of the US.
