However, it seems that people in the USA are less healthier not because of geographical location but because of health habits and culture.
Certain tweaks in beliefs and behavior can benefit many more Americans.
1. Eating food grown in the local region is not only cheaper, it’s also much healthier and fresher.
2. Walking or riding a bike to the grocery or to work, when possible, is a healthier option than sitting in your car in traffic.
3. Cleanliness in and outside home can be made into a priority.
4. More fish and vegetables in the diet instead of sugary donuts and ice cream.
More exercise also produces more positive thinking and less anxiety.
