The United Health Study released a report that ranked Arkansas as 40th of the 50 States reviewed. While Arkansas did improve from its prior ranking of 44th last year and 50th from 10 years ago, health officials and advocates point out that there are still major health issues to address for the residents of Arkansas. Obesity, smoking, and chronic health problems are among the factors considered for the ranking. Arkansas is not alone in facing the mounting problem of obesity especially in children and teens.
