SD Teens Rank Last In 3 Behavior Study Categories
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

A recently released Youth Risk Behavior Survey shows South Dakota teenagers are not doing well in several areas.  In fact, they rank worst in the nation in three separate categories.

South Dakota high school students ranked worst for eating three or more fruits per day with just 14 percent doing so. 

Twenty percent of South Dakota teens rarely wear seat belts and 27 percent reported being bullied on school property.

South Dakota teenagers are also more likely to smoke, use chewing tobacco or binge drink than the national average in each of those categories.
