    Put down that Moon Pie!

    Southerners, poor have highest rates of obesity - USATODAY.com

    The South still has the highest percentage of people who are too heavy. Nine of the 10 states with the highest obesity rates are in the South, the report says.

    Mississippi continues to be the state with the highest level of obesity at 34.4%; Colorado has the lowest rate at 19.8%

    The South may be the hardest hit by obesity because of high rates of poverty and a traditional diet that is unhealthy, Levi says.



    Top 10 Fattest States

    1. Mississippi (34.4%)
    2. Alabama (32.3%)
    3. West Virginia (32.2%)
    4. Tennessee (31.9%)
    5. Louisiana (31.6%)
    6. Kentucky (31.5%)

    8. South Carolina (30.9%)

    I heard this on the news and after the percentages were announced, word spread that the people of Mississippi were pissed!
    I reckon it's that good ole home made southern fried chicken, and all the other shit that goes with it!
    As for me, and Moon Pies, I have but one word: GROSS!
