MA is the healthiest state in the US

November Project participants climb stairs at Harvard Stadium in 2016

MA is the healthiest state in the nation, according to the 28th annual America's Health Rankings report.

The Bay State won the respect to some extent due to having the most minimal level of uninsured inhabitants at only 2.7% of the populace, in addition to a low predominance of weight and a high number of emotional well-being suppliers.

New England states Vermont and CT were also respectively placed in the UnitedHealth Group survey's top five at number three and five, which was rounded out by Hawaii at number two and Utah at number four.

The lowest ranked states were Louisiana and Mississippi. The report takes into account the number of mental health providers, dentists, and doctors per 100,000 people in their state.

A new survey has ranked MA as the the healthiest state in the United States.

Unfortunately, all of the rankings are superimposed upon alarming national trends, the report said.

Tottenham draw Juventus in the Champions League round of 16
The Seagulls have failed to score a goal in the five away games they have played against sides now above them in the league. However, Juventus may not be the prospect they might have been in recent seasons.

In spite of spending attempted years to equate health inconsistencies across the U.S., some states are conspicuously healthier than others.

"Results show the USA has a higher infant mortality rate, a higher prevalence of obesity and a lower life expectancy at birth compared with most OECD member countries", the report says. Lower measures for smoking, salmonella food poisoning and immunizations among children were key factors in that decline.

Florida's improvements include positive changes in the percentage of children living in poverty and the frequency of mental distress in the past year. "Even the top US state in each of these measures ranks toward the bottom among OECD countries".

"We're failing in our fundamental task to be a healthier nation", said Dr. Georges Benjamin, who is the executive director of the American Public Health Association.

"This year's findings demonstrate that our focus on improving health outcomes is making a real difference in the lives of MA families and communities", said Health and Human Services Secretary Marylou Sudders.

Disparities include the findings that there are 547 mental health professionals per 100,000 in MA, compared with only 85 per 100,000 in Alabama, and rates of vaccination with the full HPV vaccine series among girls ranged from 31% in SC to 73% in Rhode Island. Utah, ranked fourth, had a 10 percent increase in cardiovascular deaths.
