Our built environment is obesity inducing. The difference isn't what we eat Archived Message

it's what we do with the calories we take in. They do significantly more walking (to work, school, and errands) than we do. |
That said, the 15-20% increase in obesity doesn't account for a 3x increase in maternal mortality.
it's not good
