3. Silly article.

There's evidence for a decent analysis of variance to be run.

There's evidence that it's been run, and the article is all about the fact that while poverty and obesity have some correlation, there are all sorts of confounds.

Then it mentions possibly more important factors. But they're not a pressing agenda issue, so, well, we'll just sort of toss them in at the end and hope nobody reads that far because they don't advance the purpose of the article.

I always feel oddly swindled after reading this kind of "report." "Trade me some of your time for some useful information," and instead I get pablum. Soured, oversalted pablum.
