People Born In These 2 States Live Longer Than Almost Everyone Else

Who doesn’t want to live longer? If you were born in these two states, the research shows that you might actually have a shot at living longer than your neighbors.

A new report from the National Center for Health Statistics has revealed that people from Hawaii and Florida may actually live longer than people born in other states – if they were born between 2010 and 2015, that is. Folks born in Hawaii currently have an average life expectancy of 82 years, while those born in Florida can expect to live to the age of 80.1.

To put that in perspective, the lowest life expectancy for any state in the U.S. is just 59.

Why do scientists think that people in these two states might have a better shot at long life? Apparently, coastal towns are consistently among the nation’s healthiest. Researchers also have linked proximity to the sea to mental health and physical vitality. Sounds like a good reason to take an extended beach vacation!
