If you choose to live in a way-out suburban subdivision, are you more likely to get fat? A number of planners, health officials and others have complained in recent years that sprawl discourages walking and, therefore, encourages obesity. But two researchers from Oregon State University looked at the relationship between sprawl and neighborhood choice, based on residents' weight.
