http://www.nytimes.com/2012/04/18/he...n-studies.html I've been fairly poor; it's not hard to eat healthy. You don't need expensive anything to have a healthy diet. Just as an example, tuna is a cheap, very healthy source of protein.
Only the first world do we have obese poor people. People make choices, often bad ones.
I have plenty of poor relatives and had working class parents (at best). They're all pretty ignorant and make some really dumb choices. They may even try to eat healthy but they lack the basic information on how to do so. (Start with: cook your own food and eat vegetables).
that information is all there. **** people who cant be bothered learning, is basically my only point. i know why these things happen. but i simply have no respect for people who can make the decision to have kids and then make the decision NOT to bother looking after them. poor doesnt come into it- that **** is straight up fucking evil. ive known plenty of poor people who are great parents and do all they can for their kids. ive seen loads of middle class people whos fat little shits are a walking heart attack.
onbviously the stats are skewed that poor people are gonna be worse at this kind of thing. well, **** them. theyre not killing their kids because they are poor theyre doing it cos theyre fucking lazy and ignorant.
/upper middle class rant end
this book, I've been unable to swallow the "I'm too poor to skinny!" line.
Some points yonder:
