Most oil field vessels have deep fat fryers with more hours than the mains engs.

And they’ve never once changed or filtered the fryer oil. Yum yum.

When it was pointed out that the deep fat fryers on our new-builds did not meet SOLAS regs. The company found it was much cheaper to be concerned with our saturated fat intake than to come up to specs.

Wtf! They only base this on the obesity percentage.
[sarcasm]
Yes ofcourse, fat people are all walking corpses. How could I possibly forget that.
Very scientific indeed.

MMM, fried okra. My favorite is seafood that was sitting in the cargo box for days, cooked uncleaned and fried!

Perhaps someone should do their research. http://www.medicinenet.com/script/main/art.asp?articlekey=94686

The rankings are based on four components:

Personal behaviors including smoking, binge drinking, and obesity.
Community and environmental factors such as rates of high school graduation, violent crime, occupational fatalities, and infectious disease.
Public and health policy factors such as immunization coverage, lack of health insurance, and public health funding.
Clinical care factors, such as adequacy of prenatal care, preventable hospitalizations, and primary care physicians.

Yes, facts that the article skips right over and the image next to the article also leaves no doubt about what they think is the most important part of the study.

Did you even read the article? Where does it say they only base this on the obesity percentage?

Directly out of the article sited:

The Pelican State came in last because we have high percentages of obesity, children living in poverty, and uninsured residents.

But there were a few areas where Louisiana fared better than other states. For instance, we had a low level of binge drinking and strong public health funding. However, when it comes to weight, doctors say Louisianians have to do better.

Dr. Jonathan Roberts says, “I think what people have to do is: pay particular attention to what they eat, but how much they eat, and I think they need to pay more attention to be more physically active.”

The study also took into consideration immunization rates. It revealed that Louisiana kids aren’t getting the proper shots that they need.

That’s why the French fries always taste like fish!
