Fat Zip Codes

Standard

Following the story that having obese friends can make you obese, come yet another study that claims that you can determine the obesity of people by the zip code they are living in. Additionally, the researchers add that:

“adults living in ZIP codes with the highest property values were the slimmest, and those living in ZIP codes with the lowest property values were the fattest.”

Now if only someone would map out the various types of eating establishments in the area within the zip codes and match them with the obesity levels.
