NEWS: Want to Live Longer?

Bummer alert! Our world hasn't been exactly rocked by this news, but just in case you were wondering, the air in Los Angeles is pretty bad. So is the air in Salt Lake City, and Pittsburgh. Actually, the air quality in most major U.S. cities is downright atrocious. This is all according to a State of the Air report from the American Lung Association ...

Now, don't get us wrong: We have a lot of love in our hearts for most of the cities on this list; however, it makes us want to put on a gas mask and start loading up the U-haul. The Bay Area, where we're located, doesn't fare too well — an F for ozone pollution and a C for particle pollution.

This is the map we're going to consult if we ever decide to relocate — it lists the U.S. cities with the cleanest air.

You can check on your city's report card right here, just plug in your zip code.

How does your air quality measure up? Let us know.
