Sonoma County takes pride in being a region where people are physically fit and care about what they put in their bodies.
But a new report has ranked Sonoma 12th out of 58 counties in the state, docking points for a higher rate of excessive drinking and having fewer primary care physicians and dentists compared to other parts of California.
Sonoma was also found to have a higher percentage of fast-food restaurants than the national average, with 37 percent of all restaurants considered fast-food, according to study.
Marin County was ranked as the healthiest county in California, followed by Placer, Santa Clara and San Mateo counties.
Ranked just ahead of Sonoma County was #11 San Luis Obispo, and coming in at ## 13 was Santa Cruz.
While low-populated Alpine County was not rated, Lake County came in last.
The County Health Rankings used data from more than half a dozen sources, including the National Center for Health Statistics, the Centers for Disease Control and the U.S. Community Survey.
The survey was produced by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute.
