According to the CDC, Huntington, W.Va., is the unhealthiest town in the nation:
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).
The question is, is Huntington an outlier or a harbinger of the future of America's obesity problem?
