CPC Fellow Gordon-Larsen's new health study is the focus of Reuters and U.S. News & World Report articles

Jul 14, 2011

Two recent articles discuss the results of a study by CPC Fellow Penny Gordon-Larsen on how nearby food options affect food choices. Both articles focus on the key findings of the study, which indicate that people with lower incomes who live in close proximity to fast food restaurants are more likely to consume fast food. This was especially true for male respondents. However, the study found no correlation between an increased number of supermarkets and grocery stores with increased fruit and vegetable consumption.
