Is Montana the Healthiest State in the US?
Every year, the United Health Foundation compiles data and releases their findings about the health situation across America. They rank all fifty states, from healthiest to unhealthiest. Any chance that Montana was number one on the list?
Well, not quite. But we didn't do that bad either! Montana came in at number 21. That's in the top half! Celebrate small victories, people.
My old home state of New York came in at number ten, while the number one spot went to Hawaii.
The unhealthiest state? That would be Louisiana, which has high numbers in smoking, obesity, children in poverty, and more.
