Sun, surf and sand – what’s not to love?
Hawaii was the best place to live for those who want to live healthy and enjoy a high life expectancy, while New York was ranked 18th.
Residents of Hawaii had the longest life expectancy of the typical American at an average of 80.7 years, according to a new study published in Life Extension.
The State of God was followed by Minnesota, Vermont, Washington and New Hampshire to round out the top five.
At the other end, West Virginia ranks last with a life expectancy of 72.8 years, followed by Mississippi, Alabama, Louisiana and Kentucky.
“Life expectancy” is generally determined by a number of factors, including access to health care and homicides, but a new study also highlights health as a factor using federal data to find a higher healthy lifestyle.
Ordered by the types of exercise performed, fruit and vegetable consumption, hours of sleep, body weight, proximity to parks and schools, number of individuals, anxiety levels and public spending on outdoor recreation.
Although Hawaii, which spends “a whopping 4.8%” of its GDP on recreation, ranked fourth in healthy lifestyles, its life expectancy count still ranks high.
Minnesota and Vermont are tied for second on the list, with life expectancies of 79.1 and 78.8, respectively. Vermont had remarkably the best healthy lifestyle of any state, researchers regularly found that the largest proportion of residents regularly eat fruits and vegetables every day.
Washington came in fourth with a life expectancy of 79.2 years and a healthy lifestyle ranked eight, and New Hampshire was fifth with a life expectancy of 79 years and a healthy lifestyle ranked seventh.
New York was further down the list in n.
The Empire State and Connecticut had notably the largest difference between healthy lifestyles and the highest level, suggesting that residents are living longer despite unhealthy lifestyles.
On the other hand, Washington DC had a low overall ranking of 23 despite a healthy lifestyle ranking of 6.
It is interesting to note the inequality caused by the size of the city compared to the rest of the cities.
He also explained that life expectancy is lower because of “racial disparities in life expectancy, which are long-lasting and largely due to heart disease, cancer and homicide.”
The study found lower life expectancy in leaner states with some of the worst health care systems and where residents suffer from higher rates of chronic diseases.
The top five states on the list had a healthy lifestyle ranking, with West Virginia still coming in last, followed by Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and Kentucky.
The study eventually found that life expectancy in America had declined for two years in a row, dropping to 79 years and about 40 years of age.
Japan holds the number one spot with a life expectancy of 84.3 years.
