How can Colorado rank number six when half the population has medical pot perscription slips which they got due to some kinds of medical requirement. Like a lot of other polls, the numbers are twisted to match the desire of the polster

Colorado ranks high because of the incredible beauty of the state. The many lakes, parks, places to camp and clean air is wonderful. The medical pot is also a contributing factor. My daughter who lives in Co. has a neighbor with MS, because he is able to get his pot, he is able to ride his bike, thereby helping him to build some muscle mass. Diabetics that have problems eating can smoke, then be able to eat. People with insomnia can smoke and get some sleep. Pot is not a dangerous drug and has been used for thousands of years for a variety of ailments. Maybe that is why Colorado ranks among the healthest of states.

Anyone else notice that the top 10 "healthiest" states are not on either coast? Seems to me that middle America has a healthier lifestyle than the coast. Being from New Jersey, I can see that.

It's amazing what fresh air and open spaces can do for you.

New Hampshire is #9. Granted we have a very short coastline but it still makes us east coast.

Portsmouth, NH....I absolutely love it there!!! New Hampshire is wonderful....close enough to enjoy the big city (Boston), yet far enough away to get that small town feel. Reminds me a lot of Minnesota...only with a coastline. NH is quite simply the most beautiful place to be come Fall...and without a doubt have the BEST license plates in America (lol)!!!

charlie byrd is right. The republicans states are the most unhealthy. If the vast majority of the southern states are overwhelmingly republican, they are also the unhealthiest. When the education systems are underfunded and the people have been living on fried foods for generations, then you get unhealthy people. The state will have high incidences of diabetes, heart disease and many other ailments. Fast foods don't help much either and there are plenty in the south.

Did you notice the first real red state on the list is Texas and it is in the bottom half along with all the rest of the southern red states.

When I was a kid my sisters and brother had bikes. My mother never said be careful where you go etc. There was no fear because people didn't attack kids like they do today. When you can exercise on bike trails, etc. and not fear someone is going to kill you, you venture out more. I purchased a bike when i was stationed in Ottawa, Canada and lost 45 pounds because on weekends they closed off the parkway along the river and people went biking. Its been hanging in my garage for the last ten years because there is no way I would ride my bike where I live now.

I dropped weight like crazy when I moved to Germany where they had public walking & bike paths everywhere- beautiful & functional, and a culture of walking & biking too. On a Sunday, entire families from grandparents to little kids would be out for long walks on the public paths through the local farms & parks.

I always thought it was what you ate, and how much, not your address--maybe that's why I choose to eat healthy, and stay away from "junk" I live in "the Garden State"-tomatoes, corn, peaches, apples, berries, fresh from the vine every day. New Jersey--a "well kept" secret, I just let "the cat out of the bag" --fine--stay away...

It's also your environment too the air and how green some states are...east coast states are a real joke when it comes to that too stressful...

Wait just a minute ybleiman .. You're saying that people can take responsibility for themselves and their own lifestyles and decisions ?!? You're saying we can't blame the state we live in for our godawful diet choices, lack of exercise, and addiction to cars and TV ? That's not my America. Sounds like crazy talk to me. I live in a fat state, so by God I am fat. It's definitely not my fault that I live on soda and fast food. Maybe if my state would be less unhealthy I could be too ? Or maybe it's Obama's fault.. just like the collapsed economy he inherited is his fault.

I just had my BIG laugh for the day ..... The photo shown for Louisiana was in the French Quarters but the one for Mississippi is also from New Orleans, Louisiana ..... It shows a ferry crossing from (what we call) the Westbank, Algiers which is part of New Orleans, to the Eastbank, the "foot of Canal Street", in the back ground is the Crescent City Connection bridge, and behind it is the Perry Street Wharf, which is in the City of Gretna, Louisiana ..... How do I know, I live in Gretna and have cross the Mississippi River by the ferry as a child and teen-ager then crossed the Mississippi RIver using the CCC as an adult .......... THANKS FOR MY BIG LAUGH FOR THE DAY, AOL Healthy Living ...........

In a verse in the New Testament, the apostle Paul tells us in so many words; "For we dare not make ourselves of the number, who commend themselves by themselves. For they measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves amongst themselves, are not wise."

(My paraphrase, as I can't remember all the exact words in the verse). But you get the message. Unless we measure ourselves against the Perfect Standard of God Himself, we are using the wrong yardstick.
