From the BBC: how not to eat healthily for £1 a day

Well-to-do people who like to lecture the supposedly feckless poor on their diets always overlook this – the fact that, paradoxically, poor people can’t afford to eat cheaply.

Great take-down of an idiotic article (and a widespread misunderstanding of what it is to be poor. Reminds me of this fantastic post by J. Scalzi: Being poor).
