Unfortunately, the country is going backward in this respect. Instead, of taking actions that promote healthier eating, the Trump administration is pushing policies that would do the exact opposite — perhaps not surprising given the president’s famous love for fast food. For one, 750,000 low income people could lose food stamp benefits under new work requirements the Trump administration is trying to put in place. Advocates have said the poorest of the poor could be hurt by the proposed policies, which would limit the ability of states to seek waivers from current work requirements for reasons such as there not being enough jobs in certain areas. Not only would people not get enough to eat, but they may also turn to cheap foods such as chips and fast food burgers that have little or no nutritional value and are high in sodium and fat and all the things the researchers found might kill them. The researchers found that poor diets led to deaths from heart attacks and strokes, cancer and complications from type 2 diabetes — all in that order.
