CDC Ranks States on Physical Activity (Not on Recipes)

For the past several years, Roll Call has matched up states in a competition on the best food item offered by each one. This year’s Taste of America winner was Utah’s cherry cobbler. While some of the contest recipes are fairly healthy choices … others probably could help prompt some reflection about caloric intake. There are other ways, though, to measure health in each state, of course.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Tuesday weighed in with a look at another key health measurement in the states in its annual state report on physical activity. The report acknowledges the benefits of physical activity and documents the impact of state environmental and policy strategies to encourage it.

Among the efforts singled out was Michigan’s Complete Streets Initiative, under which the state department of transportation “will consider all legal users of the roads, from public transportation riders and motorists, to bicyclists and pedestrians when considering transportation design,” according to the report.

    Good V I should definitely pronounce, impressed with your web site. I had no trouble navigating through all the tabs and related information ended up being truly simple to do to access.

    My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on several websites for about a year and am worried about switching to another platform. I have heard great things about Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it? Any help would be really appreciated!
