President Barack Obama is "fit for duty," according to the results of his second physical exam since taking office.
The clean bill of health, released by the White House this morning, also reveals that the once avid smoker is tobacco free. While Herman Cain's campaign seems to be glorifying cigarettes, Obama has officially extinguished the unhealthy habit.
In the two-page report released by the White House, Dr. Jeffrey C. Kuhlman also said Obama is physically active, eats a healthy diet, stays at a healthy weight, and on occasion drinks alcohol in moderation, reports the AP.
The proof is in the numbers. Obama's total cholesterol level now stands at 193, compared with 209 in February 2010. His LDL, or bad cholesterol, is now 110, down from 138 last year.
