40. I think you to be correct.

Poverty is a big factor in obesity. From all I have read, low cost food, is refined food, which is generally loaded with calories. And it is a time factor also. When shopping in a grocery store, I have been told to shop from the periphery. That is where unprocessed foods are located. The problem is that eating that way is time consuming. And if working two part time jobs to make ends meet, the time is not there to do food that way. Plus it is a big learning curve to eat that way, being unprocessed food.
