Lisa Miller states in her article ”Divided We Eat”, “As the distance between rich and poor continues to grow, the freshest, most nutritious foods have become luxury goods that only some can afford.” (Miller 190). As a consequence, rich people only would have access to healthy food. In America, millions of people are in poverty; suffering from food shortage because prices of food have twice more than in other places making families struggle in order to get healthy
The side effects of hard economic times, increased poverty, stress, and lack of free time as people juggle second and third jobs to make ends meet, push Americans toward the cheapest and quickest meals.

It is more expensive for men and women who are obese to take care of themselves health wise and financially because Americans are now consuming fifty pounds more meat and fast food than in years before (“Obesity in America, By the Numbers: NPR”).
