Immigrant Children Even More Fat & Lazy Than Yours.
Posted by Casey on August 5, 2008
Who’d have thunk it. I thought immigrants and their children were going to better our society. Guess not. Turns out their lack of motivation is just as bad as ours, or you could say that they are assimilating even better than we thought.
Many immigrant children get even less vigorous exercise than their U.S.-born counterparts, the largest study of its kind suggests. Plenty of earlier evidence shows that U.S. children are pretty inactive. The new study of nearly 70,000 children simply found even lower levels of activity among immigrants.
Almost 18 percent of foreign-born children with immigrant parents got no vigorous exercise on any days of the week, and 56 percent didn’t participate in organized sports.
By contrast, 11 percent of U.S.-born children with American parents got no vigorous exercise, and 41 percent didn’t participate in sports.
Now we can start calling them fat, lazy immigrants … yessssss.
