Americans are Living Longer

But we're not getting healthier


As a part of their annual survey of the unhealthiest states, the United Health Foundation just released their annual findings, not just for each state, but for the US as a whole. 

In part, they found that even though we are making strides in medicine, we haven't been able to offset how unhealthy our lifestyles are. We are living longer but living sicker — plagued by diabetes and high blood pressure from getting little to no exercise and our increasingly obese population.
