Do You Live In One Of Michigan’s 10 Healthiest Cities?
There are plenty of healthy people in Michigan, but do you live in one of the healthiest cities in Michigan?
To determine which Michigan cities are the healthiest, New Home Source factored in the following,
- Smoking rate
- Physical inactivity rate
- Obesity rate
Spoiler alert, no cities in the following counties made the list,
- Genesee County
- Livingston County
- Saginaw County
- Kent County
- Jackson County
Saginaw County is the most obese county in Michigan and Saginaw is the most obese city in the Great Lakes State.
Counties that did make the healthiest cities in Michigan list include the following,
- Wayne County
- Washtenaw County
- Oakland County
That is it, just three Michigan counties are on the list.
Can you really blame the city or county that you live in if you are not healthy? No, that is all on each of us individually. Unfortunately, moving to one of the 10 healthiest cities in Michigan will not make you instantly healthy either (bummer).
If the saying 'you are what you eat' is true, then many Michigan residents are coney dogs, pasties, Detroit-style pizzas, Better Made potato chips, and fudge, with a Traverse City cherry on top.
That actually sounds pretty darn good.
