Health in The News: June 19, 2012 - Americans Smoking Less, But Eating More

Hello folks,
No Smoking
I'm taking a break from the ACL series to bring you this news story. It's good and bad news. First, the good news. The amount of Americans that smoke is down by nearly 6% over the last 12 years and more americans report exercising is up as well. The bad news, 28.7% of Americans are obese and diabetes is on the rise. Click here to read the article:

So, we take the good with the bad right? Presumably, the obesity numbers will begin to creep down if the trend to exercise more comes up and people start making healthier decision. One step at a time.

What do you guys think?
