CHICAGO (Reuters) - Every year there's a new one: Most livable U.S. city,
friendliest city, town with the best manners. Now comes the first annual
sweatiest city award.
Top honors go to San Antonio, Texas. On a typical summer day, San Antonio
residents lose more than 1 liter of perspiration per hour during exercise
such as walking, the announcement said.
Dallas-Ft. Worth, New Orleans, Houston and West Palm Beach, Florida, fleshed
out the top five sweatiest cities.
The list was released on Thursday by Procter & Gamble's Old Spice Red Zone
deodorant, apparently in a sweat to produce some first-day-of-summer
publicity. It was based, the announcement said, on the average high
temperature and humidity during June, July and August in the 50 cities
reviewed. Based on this the company estimated the sweat produced by walking
one hour each day.
