Lack of money causes people to use poor-quality and harmful products. Proven fact: rich people are less likely to suffer from obesity, as can afford a sufficient amount of vegetables, fruits, fresh meat and fish. Poor people like this food prefer food which quickly satisfies the body's need for energy.
