Factors contributing to the obesity epidemic.

The factors that contribute to obesity are skewed in a way that they mainly target people living below the poverty line. The first example is because healthy meals take a long time to prepare. Poorer peoples in particular may work multiple jobs, be caring for family members, or don’t have any help cooking meals. So they have a much easier time getting their hands on McDonalds. Not everyone even knows how to cook elaborate meals either. They might not have access to the internet or TV, or their parents were too busy working to teach them as children. Lastly, very few methods of weight loss work for people of low income. They need a lot of calories to keep them going throughout the day because they’re more likely to work in manual labor than have office jobs. If they don’t eat enough and they’re tired and hungry that messes with their performance and can possibly get them fired.
