Where Baltimore stands

November 01, 2001|By SUN STAFF

Baltimore ranks No.4 among the nation's most unhealthy cities for men, according to Men's Health magazine. Among the factors in the ranking were the city's high rates of sexually transmitted diseases (No. 1 in the nation) and erectile dysfunction (No. 2). Boston was rated the healthiest city for men. To figure a city's score, the magazine used an average of health, environment and fitness scores based on 28 relevant statistics. Memphis and Nashville were moved out of the bottom five because they lacked a score for fitness. For more information, go to www.menshealth.com/promos2/healthiest_cities.html.
