What is the worst part about the state you live in?

BLUEFIELD (WVVA) -- What is the worst thing about the state you live in?

A study came up with statistically the worst things about all 50 states. It was originally done by pleatedjeans.com and the Cartographic Research Lab at the University of Alabama.

West Virginia has the highest rate of heart attacks in the nation. Dr. Naeem Qazi says the statistic could be due to a number of factors including the high rate of diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and family history of heart issues.

Virginia has the highest number of alcohol-related motorcycle deaths. Chief Harry Cundiff with the Bluefield, VA Police Department says this statistic could be due to the high number of highways and paved roads in the state.
