Having constant access to fast food restaurants increases the chance you'll eat it!

Researchers at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill studied the diets of over five thousand adults -- and looked at how close they lived to fast food restaurants and grocery stores.

They found a link between low income levels and fast food consumption -- especially among those who lived one to three kilometers away from fast food restaurants.

They did not find a link between access to grocery stores and healthy eating.

5,115 people ages 18 to 30 participated in the study.
