If someone is choosing between real hunger (not the kind us finance folks get 3 hours after our Starbucks Chai Latte and vegan muffin) and unhealthy food, I'd venture to guess that 100% of them will choose the unhealthy food. Of course it's better to provide healthy meals, but keeping people alive is better than allowing them to starve to death. Bloomberg enjoys overstepping his boundaries. I think that 50% of what he does is great, and the other 50% is his ego getting out of wack. He needs to remember that most people in the world don't shop at Whole Foods.

If McDonald's was the only food option available, i would eat it. Though eventually the unhealthiness of this food would weaken my body, it would at least prolong death from starvation.
