Where do the healthiest men live?

The November issue of "Men's Health" magazine tries to answers that question by ranking the 101 U.S. cities where men are fittest.

Editor-in-chief David Zinczenko tells The Early Show the results are based on 20 live-long parameters, including death rates (both homicide and disease); illness rates (high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, etc.); body-mass index; fitness training; even environmental factors like number of parks, golf courses, etc.

This is the second year the magazine has composed such a list. Last year, Boston was ranked as the city with the healthiest men.

Here are some of the rankings from the 2002 issue:

Best Five Cities
  • Honolulu, Hawaii
  • San Jose, Calf.
  • Rochester, NY
  • Santa Ana, Calf.
  • Grand Rapids, Mich.

Worst Five Cities
  • Memphis, Tenn.
  • Philadelphia, Pa.
  • New Orleans, La.
  • Nashville, Tenn.
  • Atlanta, Ga.
  • Rome Neal
