Oh (mountain) mama...

For your edification, I present a map of teeth preservation by US state:

And the most toothless state in the Union, by a country mile, is West Virginia - 42.8% of over 65s have had all their gnashers removed. The western side of the Appalachians would appear to be the place to be a dentist, as Kentucky and Tennessee are second and third. Alabama, Louisiana and Oklahoma round out the top six, all at 30%+. At the other end of the scale are Connecticut, Utah (remember The Osmonds?) and California.

West Virginians also ate all the moon pies, with 61.2% overweight / obese. Bottom is DC at 50.2%. Conversely, West Virginians must be too busy eating to drink, as they are last for heavy drinking. I would call them lightweights, but... Way out on the edges of Lake Michigan lurk the United Kingdom's drinking partners, with the Cheeseheads of Wisconsin leading for both heavy drinking and binge drinking.

I've heard US politicians described as 'toothless' before, but that's just ridiculous.

Do you think the toothless go there or do they become toothless after settling there? Are there any stats on this?

I think living in the shadow of all those coal mines would make one's teeth fall out.
