Does surburbia make us porkers?

Very interesting article which covers studies that reveal correlations between obesity and urban design. I really dothink urban design influences our mobility habits. I used to live in a surburban neighborhood with nothing within walking distance and I obviously drove everywhere. Now I live and work in downtown Dallas and bike everyday to and fro. Sad thing is I'm still fat!
