Physical Activity Is Up, Smoking Is Down In Arizona

What a difference a few years makes in the health of Arizonans.  The amount of moderate and vigorous activity Arizonans participate in rose from 2001 to 2007.  The amount that Arizonans smoke decreased from 2001 to 2008.  All numbers about smokers decreased, except the number of former smokers, which rose.  Finally, the average amount of drinkers, heavy drinkers and binge drinkers stayed the same throughout Yuma, Tucson and Phoenix; but Tucson has 10 percent more drinkers than Yuma.
