Gallop poll shows Americans healthy habits declining

A Gallop poll released Friday, June 11th, looked at adults healthy habits of eating fruits and vegetables, not smoking, and exercising for at least 30 minutes 3 times a week.

They indicate that it may be partly due to higher gasoline prices because families have less money to spend on food.  See the news article link by clicking here.
