NEW YORK, NY – November 11, 2011Dr. Veronica Anderson, social media medicine expert and Founder and Host of health and wellness web radio talk show, Wellness for the Real World, recently published a blog on her website that convicts her readers to respond to the need for healthier low-income residents. In her blog titled “The Undeniable Correlation Between Poverty and Obesity,” Dr. Veronica shares a message of hope for our ability to change the health destiny of women suffering in areas of finance and wellness.

Dr. Anderson writes, “We’ve all thought it before – who really eats at Taco Bell and McDonalds? If you’re someone who does dine at these fine establishments, don’t send me hate mail. I’ll just reassure you that I have your best health interests in mind, and you should stop eating fast food. I’m not trying to make enemies by pointing out a social demographic, but I am trying to bring attention to this issue, so we can participate in protecting the health of our country’s people who need financial help.”

“Recent reports show that a study in which a group of women moved from a high-poverty neighborhood to a low-poverty neighborhood. Examined over the course of two years, these women showed incredibly positive health results from relocating to a higher income community. Compared with the control group, who had no change in living conditions, the prevalence for health risks lowered significantly. The women whose average body mass index (BMI) was 35 or higher, experienced a decreased of 13% in their BMI score. Women with a BMI score of 40 or higher reduced their score by 19.1%,” explains Dr. Anderson.

Wellness for the Real World features information on developing a healthy and fit mind, body and spirit in today’s dynamic society. Dr. Anderson adds her easily understandable, fun-infused voice to the broad-audience discussion on today’s most popular medicines, alternative treatments, health policies and opinions of wellness – so that her listeners can benefit from truly vigorous life in the real world today.
