Vermont Healthiest State in the Nation 4th Year in a Row as Ranked by America's Health Rankings


America's Health Rankings®-2012 Edition: Vermont healthiest state for the 4 year in a row!

Vermont has steadily improved in the rankings over the last 14 years from a ranking of 17th in 1998 to 1st in 2007. It has remained in the top 5 consistently since 2003, and in the #1 spot for the last four years. The United Health Foundation, which presents the annual America's Health Rankings  " an effort to educate Americans and encourage them to take steps toward a healthier future", credits Vermont's good health to high rates of both early prenatal care and graduation from high school, with low rates of infectious diseases and violent crimes. Vermont has a strong (and growing!) local food movement which may explain it's  #1 ranking in Diet, Fruit & Vegetables, and there are numerous opportunities for outdoor recreation all year round which undoubtedly helped with the  #5 ranking for lower incidence of sedentary lifestyle.

    What gorgeous pioeens! We have a peony bush in the front of our home but I can never bring myself to cut off the flowers once they bloom to bring inside - they are just so beautiful. Your bouquet is stunning.
