Access to good, wholesome, nutritious food is essential to staying healthy. With a plethora of fast food chains, boxed, canned or frozen convenience food, it is difficult to navigate the garbage that threatens your diet. A new study reveals that lack of education and even lack of local access to a grocery store could lead to a higher waist circumference as well as higher BMI. People who live within walking distance to markets and organic stores are much more likely to be in better shape. This infographic comes from our friends at Chef2Chef.
