Of the cities and towns we surveyed, these 5 are the unhealthiest spots for families. Bad news for California; three of the five worst are located the nation's third largest state. Here, we round up the bottom of the barrel in the health category.
(Our list was compiled by using a list of the top 100 cities by population, adding in well-known smaller cities too, and removing cities so close to other large cities that they would have similar data. Then we crunched numbers in three health criteria categories to come up with our list.)
Los Angeles, CA
Despite a decent number of quality pediatricians, Los Angeles is dragged down by its terrible smog problem, which results in very poor air quality.
