Not Phat-

Editorial in the Indy Star this morning paints a pretty bleak picture of the health of the Hoosier state.

Dr. Richard Feldman's op-ed in full.

More adult Hoosiers smoke today than did this time last year. That's not promising.

Here is the quote to pull from this piece:

"More than 72 percent of Hoosiers are now overweight or obese with the national average being 61 percent. More than 52 percent of Hoosier adults do not engage in adequate physical activity. The results: Indiana is the 10th fattest state in the country."
