Men's Health and Women's Health magazines announced their 10th annual lists of "Best and Worst" cities to live in — chosen primarily based on health and wellness factors.
Their top picks: Madison, Wis., heads the list for men, and Plano, Texas, rates No. 1 for women. Plano also garnered the No. 3 spot for men.
The magazines evaluated 100 U.S. cities for health, fitness and quality-of-life criteria in more than 30 categories, ranging from mortality rates to vegetable and fruit consumption, obesity and smoking rates.
Madison won out in part because of its high proportion of doctors, and Plano, with its 139 single guys per every 100 unattached women, helped earn the best for women title. (12/21/10)
