The winter months are the stretch of time every year where people are on high alert regarding germs.

Nobody wants them, yet we all get them. Chances are you will more than likely contract at least a little cold sometime during the next few months. Unfortunately, there's not really much you can do about it either, at least if you live in one of the top ten unhealthiest cities in the country.

It doesn't really matter how clean you are, rather it's more about the hygiene patterns of those around you. For example, if someone doesn't cover their mouth when they cough or sneeze on public transportation, you could pick up whatever bugs they're carrying regardless of how much detail you put into your own hygiene.

Also, the healthier your habits, the better your overall health will be, right? Well, if you hail from a place where everyone tries to live healthy lives, chances are those habits will rub off on you in one form or another.

These 10 places, however, are not known for their healthy lifestyles. In fact, they're the top 10 unhealthiest cities in the country, according to a survey conducted by Mindbody.

  • 1.)  Oklahoma City
  • 2.)  Detroit
  • 3.)  Mesa, Arizona
  • 4.)  Philadelphia
  • 5.)  San Antonio
  • 6.)  Indianapolis
  • 7.)  San Jose
  • 8.)  Jacksonville
  • 9.)  Memphis
  • 10.)  Phoenix

Philly is super close to South Jersey. In fact, so many South Jersey residents even have family from there. If you have any family still living there, gift them with a box of tissues and some hand sanitizer. Not only is Philly one of the unhealthiest cities in the U.S, but it comes in at NUMBER 4.
