Research done by InnerBody concludes that California is the healthiest state of America in 2022. It has the fittest residents. InnerBody Research marks California at the top, mostly due to its low smoking rate and high number of fitness and health locations. Colorado comes in second and Utah third. West Virginia comes in last. After Oregon, California is also leading in terms of healthy food.
What does not surprise me is that the five healthiest states can be found in the west, while many of the lower-ranking states are in the south. What also does not surprise me is that Florida and Texas, both on the 13th and 14th spot in the list, have extra money to spend on everything health, due to the lower taxes.
