Dallas Among the Nation’s Least Healthy Areas

So says NerdWallet. They’ve factored in our poor score on the American Fitness Index (ranked 47th out of the top 50 largest metro areas), our relatively low percentage of people with health insurance (77.4%), the number of doctors per capita, and pollution levels to determine that Dallas is the fourth-least-healthy metro area in the United States.

The three healthiest on their list: Boston, Seattle, and Portland. So feel free to see some sort of left-wing conspiracy theory behind the rankings.

    Dallas get dinged on the AFI for not having enough golf courses per capita, so I guess the new golf course is needed.
