Vermont is the healthiest state in America when it comes to people and medical-related issues, according to the 2007 America's Health Rankings list.

Minnesota, which came in first last year, finished in second place this time around. Hawaii, New Hampshire and Connecticut round out the top five.

Southern states once again found themselves on the bottom of the list. Texas came in 37th place. Mississippi and Louisiana are No. 49 and 50. Arkansas, Oklahoma and Tennessee round out the bottom five.

I am guessing that climate also plays into the equation. The colder climates of Vermont and Minnesota make for a hardier constitution, while the heat and humidity of the south would tend to sap a person' energy....at least I would be affected that way. In Hawaii the climate is so moderate that you just don't have alot of weather related stress thrown into the picture.

This doesn't surprise me. When I lived in Vermont I was lectured in a super market by a stranger because I was apparently buying unhealthy eggs.
