How healthy is your state?

If you live in the South, not so healthy.  Mississippi and Louisiana are worst; Vermont and New Hampshire are best. From Time's Healthland.

Healthiest U.S. States Ranked. Where Do You Live?
Good health depends on a confluence of factors: behavior, genes, community environment, access to care — and not least of all, where you live.

People in the northeast, for instance — in small states with low poverty rates and good access to state-of-the-art health facilities — tend to be healthiest overall, according ... to the most recent state-by-state health rankings, published by the United Health Foundation, in partnership with the American Public Health Association (APHA).

By contrast, Americans in the deep South, in states with high poverty rates and low access to high-quality medical care, rank at the bottom.
