Shock Research - Poor People Buy Cheap Food
Customers of cut price supermarkets are likely to be heavier and fatter than those who shop at expensive city centre stores, say researchers....
There was a "strong interaction" between education levels and discount shopping. The association between shopping in a hard discount store and greater body weight was "markedly stronger for lower education levels" said the researchers. Conversely, people who shopped in organic stores were much more likely to have a lower BMI and slimmer waists.
Strategies targeting food-buying behaviour in specific supermarkets may be an "efficient strategy" because supermarkets "are the very place where dietary preferences are concretely materialised and translated into a definite set of purchased foods", they said.
Ghastly fat stupid people, we must tell them what to eat and buy, so they can become slim, rich and and beautiful like us.
