Fast-food restaurants taking more blame: now they’re making kids fat (for this we stopped the presses?)

Written By Administrator On March 23, 2009

Last month we highlighted a study that claimed people who live in communities with a high number of fast food restaurants have a greater chance of suffering a stroke. Now comes a new report that links student obesity to proximity of fast food restaurants to schools. This article from the L.A.Times says:

 “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, a correlation deemed “sizable” according to the findings.”

I’m amazed the little darlings were able to walk 530 feet!
