I thought it was the fault of Buy 'n' Large!

Nope. Turns out Walmart makes you fat.

While the most obvious explanation is that cheaper food leads to more eating, Courtemanche said further research is needed to determine the exact connection between Walmart supercentres and obesity.

Yeah, more research just like this is exactly what is needed. If they could only uncover these sinister Walmart operatives who are forcing people's mouths open and cramming the food in, I'm sure that would go a long way toward breaking the Walmart supercentre-supersize customer link.

If people overindulge because food is cheap, how come you don't hear of anyone gorging themselves on carrots?

  1. Now I know why there are always so many morbidly obese people shopping at Walmart. It's not their fault--it's Walmart's! Whew, I thought it had something to do with compulsive shopping and gluttony.
