Congrats, Burlington: America's healthiest city

Congratulations to Burlington, Vt., which a CDC report found to be America's healthiest city because 92% of its residents reported being in good health.

The AP reported Burlington has relatively low poverty, higher average education, a large employer offering generous health benefits and community support for recreational activities and healthy foods.

At the bottom of the list was Huntington, W.Va., which had twice as much poverty and less than half of the number of college-educated people.
