Magazine: Gary 2nd unhealthiest city for women

December 2, 2008 1:55:34 PM PST
Gary, Indiana, is getting a title it doesn't want: the second-most unhealthy city for women. The ranking comes from Self magazine. The lackluster ranking is due to a number of factors, including eating habits, obesity rates and low rates for preventive health screenings.

Last year, out of 100 cities, Gary was named the unhealthiest place. This year that distinction goes to Detroit, but Gary only moves up one slot to No. 99.

The title for healthiest city goes to Bethesda, Maryland.
