CDC Ranks States on Physical Activity (Not on Recipes)

For the past several years, Roll Call has matched up states in a competition on the best food item offered by each one. This year’s Taste of America winner was Utah’s cherry cobbler. While some of the contest recipes are fairly healthy choices … others probably could help prompt some reflection about caloric intake. There are other ways, though, to measure health in each state, of course.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Tuesday weighed in with a look at another key health measurement in the states in its annual state report on physical activity. The report acknowledges the benefits of physical activity and documents the impact of state environmental and policy strategies to encourage it.

Among the efforts singled out was Michigan’s Complete Streets Initiative, under which the state department of transportation “will consider all legal users of the roads, from public transportation riders and motorists, to bicyclists and pedestrians when considering transportation design,” according to the report.
