4. South Carolina. This state ranks on the unhealthy list because of their rates of infectious disease and lower than usual teen vaccination rates.
3. Tennessee hovers around the bottom because they are one of the tops in smoking and violent crime.
2. Arkansas, since the state has the fewest dentists per 100,000 residents in all of America.
1. Mississippi. Known as "The Hospitality state," Mississippi is the least healthy since it is the most physically inactive state in the country. It is also one of the most violent parts of America.
