Recession Weight Gain


As if we aren't a fat enough country, now health experts are worried that people will put on even more weight. Since many studies link obesity to low incomes, experts are concerned that people will now cut back on healthful but relatively expensive items (such as fresh fish, fruit, vegetables and whole grains) and instead buy cheaper foods high in sugar and saturated fats. I thought this was already the case, but I guess it may get worse. See here for more details.

Think of the positives: their eating crap reduces the demand and hence prices for fruits, veggies, fish, etc. for people like us! Buy some apples to give out to people who claim they're hungry on the subway to do a good deed today!
