  • Mine is 15. I like how they look at vaccinations as an indicator of health. I don't know any one who does vaccinate and we are all healthy as are our children. Can't even remember the last time my kids were sick. They were exposed to the swine flu at school multiple times. So I really don't put much stock in this.

  • I lived in Minnesota for 7 years and moved back to Oregon 2 years ago. They have MN as # 6 I think but in my experience Oregon is WAY healthier!
