This essay explores the association between nutritional problems and political orientations and behavior among the elderly. A rural sample of 358 older Americans provides the data base. Results indicate that as nutritional problems increase, political interest, efficacy, and participation decrease. Also, nutritional problems seem to go along with less positive evaluations of the existing order.
