Emmett Lee Dickinson (Emily Dickinson's third cousin, twice removed -- at her request), known for his obsession with health and exercise, was declared to be “the healthiest poet to ever live.” Of course, many poets noted that Dickinson also developed many medicines, tonics and elixirs which promote a healthy lifestyle (information is HERE), so it was no surprise that Dickinson was found to be “the healthiest.”

Rita Dove, an avid bodybuilder and competitor in many bodybuilding shows, ranked second.

Below: Trump's physician Harold Bornstein, himself a health nut, ran a "Punkin' Patch" in Wawayanda, NY, for thirteen years. He had to close it down in 2008, though, due to the effects of the devastating Bush-Cheney recession. "People just weren't willing to shell out $3.50 for quality entertainment," lamented Dr. Bornstein.
