Latino Kids are so Acculturated, they are Now Obese
Well, it was just a matter of time. As America becomes more and more Latino, Latinos are becoming more and more… overweight.
An article in The Daily News the subject -bearing the seemingly playful headline of ‘Saying adiós to chips and sodas,” shows that our kids (well, yours actually, I don’t have any) are becoming obese.
[…] The numbers for Hispanics are troubling. Hispanic Americans are 1.2 times more likely to be obese than non-Hispanic whites. And in 2009 to 2010, Mexican American children were nearly twice as likely to be overweight as non-Hispanic white youth.
I hate to say I told you so, but I told you so. Oh, and you can thank these guys for their tireless efforts to lure Hispanics with their proud heritage pitches.

Why didn’t I think of it before?
