It is so easy to find environmental and public heath news that is a bummer. That is what I liked about one of these maps; it was shining a light on positive items for the United States. But just to keep it even,there is map of how a state does not excel.

For example Maine has the highest rate of organic veggie farms less than five acres, Connecticut has the cleanest teeth and Massachusetts has the top 4th grade science students.  Some of bummers, Maine has the highest rate of esophageal cancer.

But the most interesting thing I found was for the state of Iowa. The upside is Iowa has the most organic hogs and how does Iowa not excel? Think about it...they have most hog waste. Of course!
