Majority of Americans agree the cost of sustaining a healthy lifestyle is too expensive

Almost six in 10 Americans agree that being healthy is too expensive, according to new research. A new survey of 2,005 people found that 59% see the high cost of health and wellness as a major barrier to living a healthy lifestyle. It's even more difficult for those who live in cities, with 68% of urban-dwellers saying the cost of staying healthy is too high. The survey, conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Naturade, also asked respondents what their biggest priorities are when it comes to health and wellness. "Mental health" topped the list, with 65% saying it's very important — followed by "living in a safe environment" (also 65%) and "having good relationships with friends and family" (61%).
