MEDICINE STUDY LOOKS AT EVERYTHING FROM EATING HABITS… TO PHYSICAL ACTIVITY TO OBESITY RATES. OUT OF 100 CITIES–EVERY BIG CITY IN OHIO RANKED LOW. COLUMBUS CAME IN AT NUMBER 70 OVERALL. ON THE OTHER OF THE SCALE – FOR THE SECOND YEAR IN A ROW – AT NUMBER ONE ARLINGTON, VIRGINIA WAS NAMED THE COUNTRY’S FITTEST CITY. DARLENE: WHETHER IT’S TO COOL OFF OR JUST EXERCISE— SWIMMING IS A SUMMER FAVORITE. BUT YOU MAY BE TAKING A DIP IN A DIRTY POOL BECAUSE OF PEOPLE’S NASTY HABITS. DARLENE: A NEW HEALTHY POOLS STUDY SHOWS HALF OF AMERICANS ADMIT TO USING SWIMMING POOLS AS A SUBSTITUE FOR A BATH OR TO RINSE OFF AFTER EXERCISING. EXPERTS SAY PEOPLE SHOULD RINSE OFF BEFORE GETTING THE POOL BECAUSE SWEAT, DIRT, AND MAKEUP MAKES CHLORINE LESS EFFECTIVE IN KILLING GERMS. EVEN WORSE— 40 PERCENT OF AMERICANS SAY THEY’VE PEED IN THE POOL– AS ADULTS. DARLENE: ADLIB MARK: DARLENE: NAMING YOUR BABY CAN BE CHALLENGING. BUT ONE HIT TELEVISION SHOW SEEMS TO BE HELPING THE PROCESS.
