El Paso Named One Of The Healthiest Cities?

A new report came out naming El Paso one of the healthiest cities in the United States. Huh?

It seems like every week we see new studies telling us about some new, weird report or study that was done to tell us about different areas in the United States. From the best city to start a business, best city for hispanic entrepreneurs,  best state for child healthcare and more, it seems like everyday there is a new report coming out from somewhere.

This new study has me scratching my head a bit.

A new report by 24/7 Wall Street showed what U.S. cities have the healthiest eaters and I was surprised to see where El Paso came in on the list. They used information from the Gallup-Sharecare Well-being Index and conducted the study by simply asking people, “Did you eat healthy all day (the previous day)?”

According to Gallup’s findings, healthy eating in the United States was at its lowest last year with only 63.2% of people answering a strong yes to the question. That’s down from 67.7% in 2010.

Here is the Top Ten Healthiest Cities in the United States according to 24/7 Wall Street:

  1. Naples-Immokalee-Marco Island, FL
  2. Barnstable Town, MA
  3. Santa Cruz-Watsonville, CA
  4. Salinas, CA
  5. McAllen-Edinburg-Mission, TX
  6. Santa Rosa, CA
  7. Hilton Head Island-Bluffton-Beaufort, SC
  8. San Luis Obispo-Paso Robles-Arroyo Grande, CA
  9. Lake Havasu City-Kingman, AZ
  10. El Paso, TX

El Paso came in at #10 on this list as one of the healthiest cities in the United States.

El Paso, TX
> Adults who eat healthy all day: 70.9%
> Median household income: $43,633
> Adults with daily stress: 35.2%
> Obesity rate: 28.4%

According to these numbers, a huge margin of El Pasoans say that they do eat healthy all day. Check out the results above. Do you think that El Paso is as healthy as this study believes? How many people do you know that eat healthy all day long?
