Poverty Breeds Obesity

‘We were surprised by the lasting impact that one’s childhood environment plays in guiding food intake in adulthood,’ said researcher Sarah Hill, from Texas Christian University.

‘...people who grew up in relatively impoverished environments...have a harder time controlling food intake...than those who grew up in wealthier environments.’

The poor get extra penalized because they eat cheap/bulk foods high in carbohydrates, fats and sugars. And those eating habits die hard.

The really grim part? The link remained regardless of the person’s wealth later in life!    Right Oprah?
