Thanks for a good post. So many of the issues stem from our being separated from the source of our food. I think that's more important than the particulars of what we eat (even though I'm a vegetarian). If eating that Snickers bar meant you had to watch your neighbor beat his 10-year-old nephew with a stick, you wouldn't do it. If eating that lettuce meant your neighbors had to be sprayed with pesticides from a crop duster, you wouldn't do it.

Add the whole notion of highly processed foods, which are an incredibly unhealthy manifestation of our separation from our food, and you can see that the closer to home we eat, the better it is for us.
