Is Your Neighborhood Making You Fat? - Freakonomics - Opinion - New York Times Blog

This blog always make the number speaks in a surprising way. Is Your Neighborhood Making You Fat? - Freakonomics - in this post though it hits close to home. I was listening on the radio just this week, while eating my bag of chips and drinking my can of coke, that the region of Gatineau, where I live, is the worst in Quebec among urban regions for obesity among women, and 5th for men.I can't say if it's related to the fact we have less grocery stores, or more junk food outlets as they state in the post than anywhere else in the province.
