WATERLOO (KWWL) -

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 more than 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.
