Insight: Fast Food and Higher Income / Beers Books' 75th Anniversary / Ngaio Bealum / Pamela Rose


Fast Food and Higher Income A new national study of eating out and income shows that fast-food dining becomes more common as earnings increase from low to middle incomes, weakening the popular notion that fast food should be blamed for higher rates of obesity among the poor.  We'll talk with Paul Leigh, UC Davis professor of public health sciences with the Center for Healthcare Policy and Research. Dr. Leigh has conducted research on the relationship between medical specialty and career satisfaction, hypertension and occupation, gasoline prices and roadway fatalities, and obesity and wages. His most recent study focuses on the relationship between income and fast food.
