The Obesity Crisis ­ Who's to Blame?
most suburban neighborhoods lack sidewalks
and require a car to go to the grocery store,
coffee shop, dry cleaners, etc. However, some
cities are trying to change that. For
example, Nashville, Tennessee, bud-
geted $55 million over the past
three years to help install sidewalks
throughout the city. The city plans
to spend another $230 million on
additional sidewalks.
Reading, Writing, Arithmetic ... and
Health? Can/Should Schools Do More?
Some believe that schools should be
teaching more than reading, writing
and arithmetic -- they should be

students participated in Physical Education
(PE), but now, barely one-third of high-school-

the CDC found that almost 62 percent of nine

as an "epidemic" and obesity is now the
second leading cause of death, second only
to smoking. As the number of overweight
and obese Americans continues to climb,
health professionals, educators and govern-
ment leaders are looking not only for solu-
tions to this epidemic and reasons behind
these growing numbers, but the causes. So
who or what is really to blame for the obe-
sity crisis? Is it the schools, legislators, food
companies, city planners or individuals?
Read on to find out more.
Is Your City or Neighborhood Making You Fat?
Is it possible that subdivisions and the layout of our cities are the
reasons that people are overweight? Some say yes. A study pub-
lished in the American Journal of Health Promotion found that
those living in the suburbs weigh more (approximately six
pounds) than those living in the city. Urban planners admit that
