So, what’s the difference between living in California and living in Alabama? About six years. California has a life expectancy of 78.6 years, and West Virginia has a life expectancy of 72.6 years, according to a new study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

Interestingly, Minnesotans have the longest life expectancy in the United States: 78.7 years old on average. Mississippi ranked last (51st). Live expectancy in Mississippi is just 71.8 years. That’s a almost 7 years difference.
