A new study reveals the healthiest places in the entire country and one of them in the top 10 is right here in the Land of 10,000 Lakes!

This study was done by WalletHub. They looked at a wide variety of factors in order to determine their rankings to figure out which places are the most healthy and which places are the least healthy.

Some of the factors that were considered include the cost of a medical visit, the premature death rate, the number of healthy restaurants per capita, and the percentage of physically active adults.

Before we get to the healthiest places in the country, let's take a look at which cities are the most unhealthy, from the least unhealthy to the most unhealthy. They ranked a total of 182 cities for this study.
