    Fat slobs

    If the good lord didn’t intend for us to be unhealthy, he wouldn’t have blessed us with the cheese steak.

    Women’s Health magazine has ranked Philadelphia as the worst place for women to live in terms of health and wellness.  Philadelphia ranked second worst for men in the survey of 100 cities, beaten out only by St. Louis.

    WHYY’s Meggan Kole says the city lost major points for fitness and health. Our overall quality of life is poor.

    The numbers are crunched by Men’s/Women’s health researchers using information from the Centers for Disease Control and FBI.

    More on that story later this afternoon on WHYY-FM.
