(WJW) — Virginia is the “grossest” state in the United States, according to a new study.
The study, conducted by Zippia, calculated each state’s grossness based on air quality, the number of landfills and illness spread.
Researchers also included the number of Google searches for certain gross items when determining the rankings. Zippia cited “Mayo recipes” and “Croc wearing” as search terms included in its “gross” category.
Here are the grossest states, according to the study:
- South Carolina
- North Carolina
- New Jersey
- New York
- Rhode Island
