Feds Spending Nearly Half Million Dollars to Get Fat Latinos to Exercise
If you’re a Mexican man and receive a text telling you to exercise, don’t panic. It’s just the feds.
This is not a hoax. The feds are maybe — probably, definitely — watching you and they know you’re not moving your a$$. You see, the texts are supposed to encourage you to put down the taco and get your booty in shape, because “Mexican-American men report high rates of inactivity and related health conditions,” says the National Institute of Health.
It’s all part of a study (yes, they’re using you for a good cause) to get Latino men who “have limited access to public health interventions promoting physical activity” to get healthier. The low-cost strategy — or texts — will cost around $400,000, but if it works, they’ll expand it to help others.
So, come on, drop down and give the feds 10, ‘cause you got a lot of catching-up to do.
