Magazine ranks Detroit sex disease capital

/ Source: The Associated Press

Another magazine is putting Detroit at the top of a list it would rather stay off of.

Men’s Health magazine is rating Detroit the nation’s sexual disease capital.

It bases the rankings primarily on gonorrhea, syphilis and chlamydia data gathered in 2002 by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Detroit officials call the story “tabloid science.” And they say sexual disease rates have been dropping since 2002.

Earlier this year Men’s Fitness magazine named Detroit the nation’s fattest city.
