People in the South are skinnier and more honest

Posted by admin     Category: Health

So, us Southerners have a reputation for having better food, and eating more of it, than our Northern brethren. Until recently, Southerners were also thought to have higher incidences of obesity. Well, it turns out that this is not true. A recent University of Alabama at Birmingham study showed that Southern folk are just more honest and that previous studies were done over the phone, where Southerners were more honest than Northerners when it came to weight.

When this study actually weighed participants, it turns out that folks in the North west central region had 41% obesity vs 31% in the Southern region. This was published in the journal Obesity and you can read the full story there.
