Somehow, I don't think the average Permie, or subspecies, Permie Parent, would be at risk of this condition. Some of our friends, neighbors, family members are a different issue.
Fewer and fewer people even spend time outside on their urban lots, unless it's just to sit on their decks, but I've also heard that gardening is one of the fastest growing past-times, so there have to be some people out there bucking the trend.
Our gas prices just jumped dramatically - maybe that will actually help if it gets people out walking?
