Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Drewnowski et al.(1) aim to explore the complex relationship between obesity and accessibility of healthy foods on the basis of proximity and price. Their finding that obesity rates were three times higher in those that shopped at low-cost as opposed to high-cost supermarkets persisted even after adjustment for socioeconomic status. While their results do not necessarily indicate causality, they are consistent with other evidence suggesting a link between consumption of low-cost, high-calorie processed foods and obesity.(2) (Am J Public Health.
