Lubbock comes in at #3 on list of artery-clogging cities

Members of the Texas Tech Ranch Horse Team were called in to help catch a cow that got loose on the Marsha Sharp Freeway back in October. Members of the Texas Tech Ranch Horse Team were called in to help catch a cow that got loose on the Marsha Sharp Freeway back in October.

Lubbock comes in at No. 3 on a Prevention Magazine list of the 8 most artery-clogging cities in the United States.

Citing a "preponderance of artery-clogging steakhouses and barbecue joints," Prevention identifies 32 percent of Lubbock residents as obese.

Prevention found good things to say about Fort Wayne, Indiana (No. 2) and even top-ranked Detroit: "A vibrant urban agriculture movement is transforming empty lots into veggie-filled community gardens, increasing access to fresh produce in neighborhoods where it was previously scarce," but found no silver lining for Lubbock.

Perhaps we should invite the editors down for a meal and show them that Lubbockites know how to handle their steak.

Here's the full list:

1. Detroit

2. Fort Wayne, Ind.

3. Lubbock, Texas

4. New Orleans

5. Dallas

6. Baton Rouge, La.

7. Tulsa, Okla.

8. Louisville, Ky.
