I remember High School as being filled with a lot of cheeseburgers and pizza but apparently they were not as fattening as they are now?
One of the things that I find "wrong but funny" is that I constantly find articles in the paper like this that talk about studies being done to prove something that doesn't need proving it just seems like common sense. This is one of them...
Student obesity linked to proximity to fast-food outlets
Article By Jerry Hirsch
From the article...
The presence of an outlet within easy walking distance of a high school -- about 530 feet or less -- resulted in a 5.2% increase in the incidence of student obesity compared with the average for California youths
It is interesting to look at the numbers though. It is also important to note that over 30% of America is obese already and that we are leading more sedentary lives. I mean think about all the work, study, music, socializing and game playing that can be done by never leaving the computer.
