"Skiny Asian" stereotypes disappearing.
Posted 6/2/08 , edited 6/2/08
SEATTLE — Despite the stereotype Asians are petite and skinny, studies show that this population is rapidly becoming overweight, the International Examiner, a Seattle-based Asian American newspaper, reports. According to the Asian American Network for Cancer Awareness, Research and Training, Asian Americans have the fastest growing rate of overweight and obese children. Obesity among Asian American youth, in particular, is on the rise. The causes range from cultural to environmental factors: Asian American families tend to be less physically active, and according to a California Health Interview Survey, Asian teens consume more fast food than their white counterparts.


Uh-oh. =____=

If kids these days would stick to their white rice diet, we wouldn't have this problem.
