Report: Tennesseans healthier than last year

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA -

(WRCB) - Tennesseans are slightly healthier, overall, compared to previous years --at least according to one report.

The United Health Foundation released its 2011 "America's Health Rankings" Tuesday.

Tennessee ranked 39th in the nation this year. That's compared to 42nd in 2010.

The report says Tennesseans are losing weight and smoking less.

Tennessee's obesity level dropped by more than a percentage point over last year; it was enough to move the state from third fattest state in the nation to ninth.
