Massachusetts Health Ranked #2 In The US By Wallethub Who Is Better?

How Healthy Is Massachusetts? Living in Massachusetts isn't the easiest thing in the world. If you grew up in another part of the country, for instance the Midwest, you might equate living in Massachusetts to switching a video game from rookie mode to HARDCORE BLOODBATH mode. Or like going from playing little league baseball to staring down Shohei Ohtani. The roads are a circuitous mess, the people (probably from being stuck in their cars for half the day) can be a little less than friendly, and it's expensive as hell. However, there is good news for people who wonder sometimes why they put up with living in a parking lot shaped like a state. Apparently, according to Wallethub.com as stressful as Massachusetts seems it is in fact the LEAST stressed out state in the country when it comes to one thing. Health! Massachusetts health is amazing! We Rule Health Care Now I’m not going to debate a ray of sunshine on a cloudy day. Granted I have been waiting since January to see my PCP and my appointment just got pushed back to July. But wallethub obviously didn’t talk to me when they did this poll. They asked people their thoughts on health related stress in Massachusetts with a focus on access to health care, psychological care, sleep and exercise. Apparently Massachusetts is KILLING it in those categories (while also killing it in the category of not killing people as the lack of crime in Massachusetts also really helped us in this category). Let's look at the states that came in the top ten in regards to health in the US and who was better than Massachusetts in health. I should note that almost all the states in New England were represented in the top ten except two. Which ones are missing?
