The Cost of a Healthy Diet What used to be called the Food Pyramid was updated last year with a recommended diet that includes Potassium, dietary fiber, Vitamin D and Calcium. The image of that plate of salmon, leafy greens and maybe some rice pilaf may be designed to promote healthy eating, but a new survey says that could add hundreds more dollars to the average grocery bill, making it unaffordable for many Americans. That's according to a study published today in the Journal of Health Affairs. Pablo Monsivais, a researcher at the Center for Public Health Nutrition at the University of Washington, is the lead author.

But the bottom line is Russia's effort to influence American democracy. Do the President and his aides care enough to take action before voters go back to the polls?
