View Full Version : Phoenix sweats most but Miami suffers more

Phoenix on Wednesday was named the sweatiest city in the United States, but Miami topped the list as the most uncomfortable American city due to its mix of humidity and heat.

The fifth annual sweat survey sponsored by Procter & Gamble Co. handed the dubious distinction to the Arizona capital for the third time. El Paso, Texas, earned the title in 2004 and San Antonio, Texas, in 2002.

The study of 100 cities estimates the amount of sweat a person of average weight and height would produce walking around for an hour in the average high temperatures of a particular city during June, July and August.

The latest survey found that the average Phoenix resident produced 26 ounces (0.77 litre) of sweat per hour during a typical summer day last year when the desert city's high temperature averaged 93.3 F (34 C).

It means that in under three hours, Phoenix residents collectively produced enough sweat to fill an Olympic-sized swimming pool, said Jay Gooch, sweat expert at Old Spice, a Procter & Gamble Co. antiperspirant brand.

this actually hits home for me... (no BS here)

My brother in-law (all 350lbs of him) and his family (add another 300lbs for his wife) moved to Phoenix 3 months ago...

I'm quit certain they are the ones who put Phoenix over the top in this catigory.

I have lived in Phoenix and Orlando (and been to Miami twice) and I think you get used to the dry heat in Phoenix pretty quickly, but it just felt hotter in Miami and Orlando and harder to breath....I think I sweated a lot more in Florida....both places would be nice for a winter home to escape Colorado. :tongue:
