Health Alert: Decline in high school students smoking

Posted: Updated:
(CBS) - The number of US high school students smoking cigarettes has dropped to its lowest level in 22 years. The CDC released survey results which show about 16 percent of high-schoolers smoke. Texting and driving is still a big problem though. 41 percent of students surveyed admitted they sent a text or email while driving.
(CBS) -  Men who eat a lot of processed red meat may have an increased risk of dying from heart failure. A new study published in an American Heart Association Journal says processed red meats like salami, sausage, bacon and hotdogs commonly contain sodium, nitrates and other additives that may contribute to heart failure.  
(CBS) - Vitamin D may help you live longer. California researchers have found people with lower levels of Vitamin D in their bloodstream are twice as likely to die prematurely than those with higher levels. Researchers noted at least two thirds of the US population has Vitamin D deficiency.
