US Buys Unhealthiest Groceries

A report from the National Bureau of Economic Research finds that the  4,500 residents of Musselshell County, Montana, purchase the least  healthful groceries of any county in the United States. But while  experts have long stated that affordability and access to nutritious  foods (i.e., food deserts) are the primary reasons why people don’t eat  healthier, the author of the new report argues that an area’s “food  culture” has a lot to do with it, noting that some groups of  consumers—like those in Musselshell County—might just be less interested  in healthy foods.
