Healthy and Unhealthy Cities

A new study out by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention just crowned Huntington, West Virginia as America’s unhealthiest city.
Nearly half of the adults there are obese.
The city also leads the country in the number of people with diabetes and heart disease.
It’s a far different story about 800 miles to the north in Burlington, Vermont.
It’s now America’s healthiest city - with 92 percent of residents reporting they’re in good health.
Burlington also has some of the lowest levels of diabetes.
The study credits people in Burlington with spending lots of time outside, biking, hiking and skiing.
