  • Survey: Minnesota is the healthiest state

    ATLANTA, Georgia (CNN) -- The average resident of Minnesota stands a better chance of avoiding smoking, car accidents and obesity than a friend living 900 miles to the south in Tennessee.

    That is among the findings of a study released on Monday by the United Health Foundation, which has been tracking the nation's health for the past 15 years.

    ...

    Minnesota, New Hampshire and Vermont are considered the healthiest states in the country, followed by Hawaii (4), Utah (5) and Massachusetts (6).

    Southern states, which have consistently ranked near the bottom of the rankings, accounted for the bottom 11 states in the 2004 survey including Tennessee (4, Mississippi (49) and Louisiana (50).

    Funny thing is that the last time I was in Minnesota, I saw a car accident right in front of my eyes

          Minneapolis has a lot to see and do. Theres always Mall of America and many interesting things to see and do downtown. I always seem to end up there in the winter (5 below for the high, you know the deal) I recommend going in June or July. Minnesota is a great place if you like to fish too.
