CBS NEWS – A new report shows it’s not only what you put into your body that affects your health — it’s where you live.
United Health Foundation unveiled its 22nd annual America’s Health Rankings on Tuesday that provided a national look at health problems — and progress — in all 50 states.
Texas ranked 40th on the list.
Researchers pulled data from agencies which included the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Census Bureau and American Medical Association to come up with the annual list.
