I just learned that according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, Burlington, Vermont is the "healthiest city" in America.
Apparently, 92% of Burlingtonians claim that they're in good health, exercise more than average and are less likely to be obese or have diabetes.
Seems like our various enlightened diets are getting some of the credit. According to an AP article: "And though college staples like pizza are common [in Burlington], healthier foods arealso popular. Grass-fed beef is offered in finer restaurants, veganoptions are plentiful, and the lone downtown supermarket is run by aco-op successful in selling bulk rice and other healthy choices tolow-income residents."
