Affordable Healthcare and Food Policy

Affordable Healthcare and Food Policy

It is a truth universally acknowledged that food policy and healthcare are closely interrelated.

Currently, as a medical economy measure, we ourselves are treating swelling and bruising associated with a dislocated shoulder by using bags of frozen vegetables as cold compresses. We hope to maximize medical benefits by using the veggies in a pot of chicken soup (taken by mouth, twice daily) but have yet to find a recipe easily cooked while using  just one arm.

Health consumer note: Safeway has two-pound bags of peas and corn kernels on sale, two for $4.

While good food clearly contributes to good health, the relationship between health and mass transit is more problematic. We dislocated that shoulder after slipping on those damn tiles in a DC Metrorail station.
