I live in Seattle and I can't say I agree with the ranking... we have one of the highest depression / suicide rates in the country, it rains all year round, the women here are undesirable, our professional sports teams are terrible.  We have a decent economy thanks to Microsoft and Boeing but both have lost a huge amount of market share in the last decade and our state government is nearly bankrupt...

We can heal everything with sex. Except hypothermia, which we cure with cuddles. Didn't you know?

Why just men? I think exercise, employment, air quality, heart disease, diabetes and depression are all important factors for the well-being of women as well.

Yes, but women have magical healing powers. We think. The research is still unclear.
I KNEW it!

Nor the tastiestness of cheesesteaks, that should have made Philly the best city to live in. That and it's a great beer city.

This "study" is blatantly flawed. At the least it was already mentioned that socioeconomic issues seem to not be taken into account. Nor is population size.

I would assume that they only examined a male population in areas where that was feasible, and anyway it's Men's Health magazine. Of course they're going to set things up around the assumption that their readers are male.

Not reported in the article is how the broader study found East St. Louis slipping to #300 in the listings.

To determine the rankings, the magazine evaluated 100 cities in 35 categories, which included exercise, employment, air quality, heart disease, diabetes and depression. The data came from sources such as the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the Center for Disease Control and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Burlington, Vt., was listed as America's best city for men, while Memphis, Tenn., was at the bottom of the list. Kansas City pulled down the 91st spot, while St. Louis was tabbed for 96th. Both received F rankings, according to Men's Health.

Well crap, looks like I need to find a new city. Though if I'm not mistaken most of those in the top 10 are really richie cities.
