There was a recent post in the Huffington Post titled … “Healthy Food Isn’t Necessarily More Expensive Than Junk Food, Study Finds” … which is one of those headlines that implies so much and actually means very little.
It’s like saying that hitting your foot with a hammer won’t necessarily break your toes. It’s a meaningless statement.
