Only 3% of Americans have ideal cardiovascular health, while 10% have poor heart health, according to research reported in the Journal of the American Heart Association. The conclusions are based on a survey of 350,000 Americans who reported on metrics including blood pressure, cholesterol, BMI and diabetes. The percentage of heart-healthy respondents was lowest in Oklahoma, West Virginia and Mississippi and highest in Washington, D.C., Vermont and Virginia.
