LUBBOCK, TX -- According to Prevention Magazine, Lubbock is the third worst metropolitan area for heart disease and obesity in the United States. The article last week, authored by Celeste Perron, said the rankings were based on data from the Centers for Disease Control.

The article said in part, “32% of Lubbock residents are obese, in no small part due to the preponderance of artery-clogging steakhouses and barbecue joints.”

Dallas also made the list as the fifth worst metropolis. Detroit, Michigan was the absolute worst according to Prevention Magazine.
