Re: Studies Show 50% of Brownsville Population Falls into Obese Category

My opinion is that obesity in South Texas is higher than in other states, partly because sinced there is more poverty, there are more people on food stamps. People receiving food stamps aren't particularly careful about what foods they buy. I've seen the grocery carts. They are filled with junk food. Yes, I believe it's ultimately the choices we, ourselves make, that make us overweight or not; but the government has much blame as well. I say, ban certain food items when using the Lone Star.
