POLL: Californians Concerned About Obesity, Diabetes

A new poll shows Californians are concerned about one health problem more than any other.

People responding to the most recent Field Poll out of the Bay Area say more than anything else they're worried about childhood obesity and diabetes.

"Fifty-nine percent mention that as among their top health concerns. That now outranks illegal drug use," Spokesman Mark DiCamillo said.

DiCamillo says people are overwhelmingly in favor of more fresh water where children go.

"Also, enacting policies to increase the availability of fresh fruits and vegetables, especially in low income neighborhoods," he said.

That idea most common among lower income voters and Latinos.
