This is a lame ass and pointless study. Okay, that was a bit redundant. I should’ve just called it a “study.” Lame ass and pointless should just be inferred. But the results of the study are too comical not to mention. Seems that living in close proximity to a bunch of fast food joints, when controlled for socioeconomic factors, results in a slightly lower risk of obesity in teens.
Let’s say it’s a legit correlation. Maybe having a variety of filling, “delicious”, satisfying food takes the stress out of being poor (or just living). I mean, if your mom works 2-3 jobs but you still can’t make rent and school sucks and etc., then at least you have options to feed yourself cheaply (in your eyes), without waiting or having to clean up shiz, blah, blah, blah.
