Health mag names St. Louis "Worst City" for men

ST. LOUIS (KMOX)__It’s another body blow for St. Louis’ self-image and this time the PR thrashing comes from two national lifestyle and fitness magazines.

St. Louis was the worst city for men to live in – and fourth worst for women – in 2010 according to a new listing by Men’s and Women’s Health Magazines.

The magazines rated 100 cities in 41 categories, from cancer rates to cost of living, life expectancy, eating and exercise habits.  They also factored in death and obesity rates and considered quality of life factors such as the ratio of single women to single men. Madison Wisconsin was #1 to live in for men. Plano, Texas was #1 to live in for women.

The listing appears in the magazines’ January/February issues.
