The 2011 America’s Health Rankings finds that Wyoming residents aren’t as overweight as some, but the scales are tipping in the wrong direction.

Overall, Wyoming ranks 21st out of 50 states for health.

The report released recently by United Health Foundation finds that Wyoming residents and the rest of the nation show troubling increases in obesity and diabetes rates.

In the last 10 years, Wyoming’s obesity rate rose from 18 percent to 25.7 percent of adults.

The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports there are an estimated 110,000 obese adults in the state.

The report noted plenty of positive marks for health in Wyoming, including the lowest level of air pollution in the nation.
