An interesting Minnesota health tidbit

I spotted this is a garbled mess of text I was working with today...


Carver County Quality of Life Indicators
Health

Nearly 60 percent of the County’s population is estimated to be overweight.

This just proves the point that especially in the ever-expanding hell of cookie-cutter McMansions and cul-de-sacs; even once-svelte Minnesotans are battling with the expanding waistlines that plague every corner of the country. I blame an unholy combination McDonald's and a lack of sidewalks coupled with the missing walkable downtowns that I remember from earlier times.
