If Americans walked to the store and whenever they could would we still be the fattest country in the world?

    The lack of physical activity is one component of our national obesity problem, but poor diet is another strong factor. Increasing walking will certainly help the obesity problem, but if someone consumes more calories as a result of getting more exercise, then the problem would persist.

    Education about diet and exercise is important, but obviously the current system isn’t working. Improvements to pedestrian infrastructure will help to reduce obesity because people will be more willing to walk or bike if there is a safe path on which to do so.
