illoWith poor nutrition contributing to four of the six leading causes of death in the United States, why do more than 40 percent of the country's top hospitals host fast-food franchises--and serve unappetizing meals to boot? It's a problem that a growing number of healthcare providers are working to resolve by dishing up more organic, locally grown foods and antibiotic-free meat to patients, workers, and visitors; starting on-site farmers' markets and gardens; and showing junk-food purveyors the door. noharm.org/us/food/issue
