The Quad Cities has some of the least healthy hearts in America, according to a recent study.
The survey, published in USA Today with information from the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index, ranks the Quad Cities as the 2nd most likely place in America for people to have a heart attack.
The study was based on interviews with more than 230,000 adults ages 18 and over in 189 different metropolitan areas across the country.
While Gallup says residents performed well in terms of overall physical health, the Quad Cities has a higher than average rate of high blood pressure, and a higher than average rate of people who smoked.
