From the Daily News:
The bodega-riddled Bronx is the unhealthiest place to live in New York State, a new report says.
The other four boroughs didn't fare much better, the study by the University of Wisconsin's Population Health Institute and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation found.
The healthiest New Yorkers call scenic Putnam County home, while Queens won top marks in the city.
Of New York's 62 counties, Queens ranked 22nd, Manhattan was 30th, Staten Island hit 34th and Brooklyn came in a lowly 58th - four slots ahead of the Bronx.
Counties with large minority populations and high rates of poverty, like the Bronx and Brooklyn, consistently rank as less healthy, officials say.
Many residents of those areas struggle to buy fresh produce, join gyms and visit doctors. They're also more likely to be obese and diabetic than their wealthy counterparts.
The study ranked the "health outcomes" of counties in each state by looking at longevity, baby weight and how residents feel physically and mentally.
Researchers also did a second ranking that measured factors that impact residents' health, such as smoking, exercise, access to parks and the number of health care providers nearby.
