THIS WEEK IN HEALTH
– The release of new data from the Centers for Disease Control may dispel some myths about what we think we know about low-income families and their relationship to fast food, and show how obesity affects various racial groups in America. (WaPo, 9/18 and NPR, 9/23)

– We were also able to see how prevalent obesity has become in certain D.C. neighborhoods. (DC Inno, 9/18)


Basically, the moon is going to get really weird on Sunday. Don’t miss it.
