Study: Kids in Suburban Sprawl More Likely to be Obese

"The most likely reason--those living in sprawl are effectively living in their cars. They are getting little exercise walking as part of their daily lives, have less time to be physically active, and may even consume more calories as cars become de facto snack shops."

Kids who ride bikes to school are never fat.

Parents may feel they are doing their kids a favor by driving them to school, but they may be dooming the kids to a life of sloth and diabetes.

Parents should ride a bike to work too!
