Illinois is staying right where it is as far as America's Health Rankings are concerned.  Dr. Reed Tuckson is the chief of medical affairs for UnitedHealth Group.  He also says every American must reverse the fact that 25-percent of U.S. adults are now obese.  

Tuckson says Illinois has to improve in some areas.


Tuckson comments

The United Health Foundation report lists Mississippi and Louisiana as the least healthiest states because so many people there are obese and have diabetes.  Vermont is tops on the list, followed by  Hawaii, New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Minnesota.
