According to the nonprofit United Health Foundation, Vermont is the healthiest state in the Union! Louisiana ranks towards the bottom at #47!

The annual ranking considers 22 indicators of health, including levels of obesity, smokers and cancer deaths.

Mississippi came in dead last for the 9th consecutive year, in large part due to sky high rates of heart disease and infant mortality.
