News from the world of the fat and poor.....

Apparently neighborhood property values predict local obesity rates better than education or income.

"The study, published in Social Science and Medicine, found that for each additional $100,000 in the median price of homes, obesity rates in a given area dropped by 2 percent."
Let me get this straight. The less money you spend on bacon cheeseburgers, the more money you have for your mortgage. Hmmmm. Maybe I should start investing my bacon cheeseburger money. After all, you can never be too rich or too thin........

KNowing how much my house has shot up value, compared to how much weight I put on in the same time- that study is a bunch of bunk.

I'm sorry to say.

:P

They have nothing better to do with their time and money than study stuff like that?

Perhaps it's because they have to work so hard to pay the larger morgage they don't have time to eat!

Crap, in other words if I lost that 80 or so pounds I need to I could afford to live in San Diego? Man, now I feel depressed, think I'm gonna go eat a bacon cheeseburger.....
