Approximately 43 million people are living in poverty in the United States.  That's 43 million people who may not know where their next meal is coming from, how they'll pay their rent or if they'll be able to see a doctor in the near future.

When you think of good health, good nutrition and exercise may come to mind. While eating right and exercising can be challenging for many of us, for people living in poverty it can be almost impossible. On HealthSmart:  The Poverty Effect we'll discuss the link between poverty and poor health and what's being done to break the cycle.
