Sprawl Makes Oregonians Fat
"True, obesity rates across the U.S. are surging, but Oregon is leading the charge of the fat brigade in the West. According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data, Oregon's 22 percent obesity rate makes it the fattest state west of the Rockies. Nationally, we're No. 14... There are a number of obvious theories about why Americans are getting fatter: We drive more, eat worse, exercise less, watch more television and so forth. But what is it about Oregon in particular that is turning us into walking dirigibles?"
