Why do Steel and Ghost type Pokemon have low HP?

It's honestly to balance out the playing field. If there were Pokemon like Steelix - with an already high defense, mind you - with a base HP of, say, 80 or 70 HP, they would be extremely good. Too good.
For Ghosts? Simple, really. In the beginning, the ghost-types were pretty much meant to be focused in Sp. Attack, or Speed, serving as glass-cannons. They never were meant to really have THAT much HP...
Well, that's just my view of it. Hope it helps.
