Recently, I discovered a most disheartening chart: It shows a virtual crash in public consumption of fruits and vegetables. From 1990 to 2000, per capita fruit and vegetable consumption steadily climbed. Alas, American fruit and vegetable consumption has since dropped precipitously. Blame the reversal on the cost of nutritious foods, with increased demand for limited supplies from the higher-income middle class pushing prices ever upward, and much faster than gains in median income.
