Courtney Tompkins May 11, 2010DSM: healthy & safe A new Gallup & Healthways survey scored 187 metro areas and rated the Des Moines/West Des Moines area at #3 on the top ten safe & healthy place list. The survey factored in violent and property crime rates, as well as access to 13 basic needs like fresh fruit and veggies, shelter, clean water and health care.Yay for the city I love! Way to stay healthy & safe! One response to “DSM: healthy & safe” Thanks for the post Courtney. It is a fact that most of the metros around the world is not safe today. They are either facing security problem or are facing health related problems. The information would be helpful to those who want to relocate at the present time. They must prefer the top ten or twenty cities according to their budget and need. Thanks once again. Have a nice time.Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
