These Are The Healthiest Communities In The U.S.

While a lot of people do the best they can to stay healthy, sometimes their environment may be doing things that sabotage them without them even knowing. There's no doubt some areas in the country do a better job at making sure their residents are as healthy as possible, and now a new report reveals which ones are the best out there.

“U.S. News & World Report” has teamed with the Aetna Foundation for their second annual Healthiest Communities Ranking, which evaluated 3,000 communities nationwide across 81 health-related metrics in ten categories, including education, population, health, infrastructure and environment .

So, with all that in mind, the magazine chose Douglas Country, Colorado as the Healthiest Community in the U.S. The area lands in the Top Ten in at least four of the 81 areas, including physical activity, educational attainment and median household income. In Douglas Country, as well as six of the other Top Ten healthiest communities, nearly all adults exercise and only about a quarter skipped their annual wellness checkup. As for one of the healthiest state, it appears to be Iowa, whihc has 62 counties landing among the top 500
