With Twilight: Eclipse
coming out on June 30th, it is time once again to examine the developments in the physique of our buddy Taylor Lautner, and to figure out how he puts on muscle mass so quickly.

A survey of 2900 individuals found those living near more fast food restaurants and convenience stores to be 25% more likely to be obese. The Canadian survey looked at food sources within 800 and 1600 meters of homes. If there were more grocery stores versus restaurants/convenience the likelihood of obesity decreased. The link between restaurants/convenience stores versus grocery stores also decreased with distances greater than 1600 meters.
This was a short survey I found… Continue
