Do You Live In A Healthy Neighborhood?

Your risk of developing type two diabetes could be affected by where you live.

Researchers at Drexel University found people living in what they consider healthy neighborhoods had a lower risk of diabetes.

Healthy neighborhoods are more suitable for physical activity and give residents close access to healthy foods.

Experts monitored the glucose levels of over 2,000 adults living in three different types of neighborhoods. Those living in what were considered the healthiest neighborhoods were 38-percent less likely to develop type two diabetes.
