W Virginia town gets poorest health ranking.

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – Obese mayor of America's fattest and unhealthiest city explains why health is not a big local issue: "It doesn't come up," said David Felinton, 5-foot-9 and 233 pounds. "We've got a lot of economic challenges here in Huntington. That's usually the focus."

Nearly half the adults in Huntington's five-county metropolitan area are obese — an astounding percentage, far bigger than the national average in a country with a well-known weight problem.

Huntington leads in a half-dozen other illness measures, too, including heart disease and diabetes. It's even tops in the percentage of elderly people who have lost all their teeth (half of them have).
