brian has a look at the road this is morning. you think any of the fog is contributing to the slowdowns? probably not. we typically don't see problems that unusual. fog is a self-correcting problem. most people do slow down naturally. i don't think that's the cause of the slowdowns around the triangle. looks like it's just congestion 40 westbound through garner. 20 minutes from 42 to 440, a solid backup from interchange. on the south side of raleigh in the fortify work zone, we are not seeing delays in the work zone. heading from wayne to 540 out to the airport, no delays this morning. here's a look at the road weather index. in the triangle area according to the cameras no fog on the ground, but as elizabeth showed us, the trend seems to indicate

7:42 am
unfortunately in the south, the numbers are not as good at 43% and in the south, we see a higher incidence of chronic disease, heart disease, high blood pressure, cancer, but the good news is it's getting caught earlier, and we have found an increase of men exercising. they are taking time to workout and they are spending less time they are spending the same at amount of time in front of their television but they report a usual source of medical care, a primary care physician such as a family physician. >> reporter: what is it about men in the south? why are we struggling more? >> chronic disease tends to be higher in the south, and what i encourage the men in the south, when they hear this story, make
7:43 am
have a family physician. one of the most important things you can do is invest in your own health care. men do a good job take care of their families, their cars, and making sure their careersor track but sometimes, they don't pay attention attention to their own health. this is an investment in yourself and your future. you don't have to feel sick to see a doctor. that's a barrier in the survey. the men had a sense they needed to feel sick before they to go. nothing is further from the truth. have an evaluation with a physician and evaluate your risk factors. if you do have something going o -- on, we'll watch it early. >> reporter: quickly, how old do you need to be before you have annual, physical checkups?
7:44 am
physician and that starts at age 18. just because you're 25 and feel great doesn't mean you shouldn't have a family physician. you want someone who knows your name so if something does change or you need to talk, you can get in there. >> reporter: dr. wanda filer, president of the american academy of family physicians, thank you very much. it's been 28 years and there is still one simpsons haven't done.
