FOOD SEGREGATION. On Martin Luther King Jr.’s holiday, this health edition discusses how poorer and colored neighborhoods pay higher prices for their food. While wealthier areas have access to healthier foods, the low-income barrios have a high prevalence of fast-food outlets and liquor stores and find it hard to find fresh and affordable fruits and vegetables. Experts also comment on a new study revealing that teens in California continue addicted to junk food and sodas heavy on fat and sugar.
