According to a study conducted by “America’s Health Ranking”, the overall health of the nation is declining.  Among the states falling in the national ranking system is Hawaii, which lost first place to Massachusetts.  However, Hawaii did place among the top five healthiest states, sharing that exclusive group with Vermont, Utah, and Connecticut.

Massachusetts eclipsed Hawaii in several categories, including availability of health care insurance:

“The Bay State won the honor in part due to having the lowest percentage of uninsured residents at just 2.7% of the population, plus a low prevalence of obesity and a high number of mental health providers.”

According to the study, the U.S. ranks 27th in terms of life expectancy in a list of 35 countries selected by “America’s Health Ranking.”
