New study shows Americans are getting fatter…who knew?

Today I ran across an article on MSNBC.com highlighting a study that shows American’s are becoming more obese by the day. The funny thing is those American’s don’t even seem to realize they are obese. Or maybe they don’t realize the impact obesity has on their overall heath. This is so sad.

So what are the most obese states in the US? You could probably guess:

  • Mississippi
  • Alabama
  • Tennessee
  • West Virginia
  • Louisiana
  • Kentucky
  • Oklahoma
  • Arkansas

Okay before you get angry about what I am about to say. I KNOW there are exceptions to all statistics. That said, does anyone know of a study that compares obesity rates to intelligence levels? Actually kinda. There have been studies that do show healthy foods = brain power. The healthier you eat, the less likely you are to become obese.

I see a correlation.

    I do have relatives in the South, and while their food is delicious, it could also easily be classified as a weapon depending on your age.
