Powerful information

I am deeply impressed. Here is the new food data system website announced today by USDA's Economic Research Service. An article of faith motivating this weblog is the belief that information is the antidote to money in the struggle for a more sensible U.S. food policy. So consider that, with the new website, the following chart took me less than five minutes to produce, including the time it took to figure out how the site worked. Any interest now in letting Pepsico have access to your children for a little "nutrition education"? Try this site out yourself.
