How's America's health? It depends on the state. For its 2011 America's Health Rankings, the United Health Foundation looks at health-related factors across the U.S., such as smoking, obesity and hospitalization rates to see which states are healthiest and which fall short.
Overall, the report isn't stellar. The rankings show a "dramatic" increase in obesity across the country, so much so that every person who quit smoking in 2011 was offset by a person who became obese.
