VO Start: MAIN LIBRARY (Main Library, University of Iowa) – For college students, finding time to eat during a hectic school day is difficult enough, but eating healthy is an even tougher challenge.
A study published by the Harvard School of Public Health in 2013 found that a healthy diet cost about $1.50 more per day than an unhealthy diet. It may not seem like much but it can make maintaining a healthy diet difficult on a college student’s budget.
Unhealthy eating habits have been tied to a spike in cases of diabetes. Currently almost 1 in 10 people is diagnosed with some form of the disease.
Type-2 diabetes or adult-onset diabetes has become a more common occurrence, with a notable rise of cases in children.
