Deadly Suburbs

Poor Skadz just got out of the city and now Reuters reports the suburbs may be bad for your health.

Living in the suburbs may have once been part of the American dream but it can lead to nightmares such as high blood pressure, arthritis and headaches, researchers reported on Monday.

They didn’t mention ennui or tooth decay, but apparently cities, those densely-populated, concrete accretions of iniquity, are healthier than your average bucolic McMansion-strewn town. Boston was one of the densely-populated cities that were part of the study in October’s issue of Public Health, so we can’t even claim that they must be talking about Atlanta or Miami.

    I did no such thing :) I stayed right in the same apt I have been living in in the South End for 2 1/2 years. Was just telling people to avoid the ugliness of the city on moving week :)
