NYT reports on the ways

NYT reports on the ways that surburban town planning has caused obesity, depression, isolation, and many other health problems in Americans. Town planners are now realizing that with no sidewalks, walking is made impossible, making residents exclusively dependent on their cars. A demographer states, "If you look at San Francisco versus its suburbs, you find a pound or two pounds difference" in expected body weight. "If we all walked like New Yorkers, we'd all weigh a little bit less. But we're not going to weigh like New Yorkers until we all live like New Yorkers." Good enough for me.
