The massive poll reports that 55% of respondents said they feel "forced" to buy junk food because it's much more expensive to purchase healthy food products. Not too long ago, researchers over at Drexel University put together a study group of 2,800 Americans to locate the depth of the price disparity.

The paper reported that on average, healthy, perishable foods were almost twice as expensive as unhealthy packaged foods; we're talking a staggering 61 cents vs. 31 cents per serving. Moreover, the study determined that every 14% increase in the healthy to unhealthy food price ratio was associated with a 28% decrease in healthy diets.
