anyone who’s taken Sociology 190? Shoutout to Prof. Christakis!

“The study concluded that obesity is partially a result of voluntary choices or behaviors, but people are embedded in social networks and are influenced by the appearance and behaviors of those around them as well […] College students tend to eat foods that taste good, are easy to grab, or that friends
are eating” ..maybe this is something to be conscious of in our daily lives on campus?
