What Ails Louisiana - the State's top 10 health problems!
Posted Sep 29 2009 10:15pm
My Louisiana Life magazine arrived and I found a really interesting article that addresses one of the issues I' ve noticed during my trips home over the last several years. I' ve noticed that people tend to be much larger than those I see here along the Central Coast of California or remember from my life in the Great State between the 1960' s and 1989.
What Ails Louisiana uses the literary figure Ignatius J. Reilly from the wonderful novel A Confederacy of Dunces for comparison with today' s obese and to describe metabolic syndrome and related conditions. It is worthy reading whether you live in Louisiana -- or not!
