AUSTIN, Texas -- A new study conducted at UT shows that people's hometowns shape how they talk about food.

Researchers found people that live in healthier cities like Austin talk about places such as farmers markets and use more complex language to describe cuisine than people in unhealthy cities.

The study showed that those that live in unhealthy cities talk about pizza and alcohol more frequently. Researchers also found people in unhealthy cities are more likely to discuss food they have had in the past, while residents of healthy cities focus on future food plans.
