Well, I've got good news and bad news for you....a new study from the American Heart Association has discovered that us adults in the U.S.----good news---we ARE living long, but we are SICKER than those in other nations on this globe.

Looks like the reasons why---bad diets, not getting enough exercise those are the two BIG reasons while we are not as healthy as many other people on this planet.  Here's what the American Heart Association has to say, and it's a bit of a "wake up call."

Dr. Mariel Jessup, president of the American Heart Association. "We have it within our power to create a world that's free of heart disease and stroke. But everyone has a role and responsibility to make this happen – policymakers, healthcare professionals and the public."

What's odd part of the study---the U.S. spends more money on healthcare, turns out those dollars are not adding up to healthy Americans.  (UPI)
