Quad Cities Has High Rate Of Heart Attack

Updated:

DAVENPORT, Iowa - New research shows the Quad Cities has the second-highest rate of heart attacks in the country.

The highest rate is in the Huntington, West Virginia area, followed by the Quad Cities.

The research by Gallup-Healthways shows that 28.7% of the QC population have high blood pressure, and 21% are smokers.

Both factors contribute to a high rate of reported heart attacks.

On the bright side, the Quad Cities scored well in overall health, eating healthy, and in exercising on a regular basis.
