On Life Expectancy.

I think it’s pretty interesting that there seems to be a pattern in where you live and how long you live. Though, there is probably not that much correlation between those elements as much there is for your income and lifespan. Where you live is just a shared factor between the two. This is because people who live in rich neighborhoods are more wealthy and thus able to afford healthcare, healthier meals, and other purchasable factors that raise life expectancy. So it isn’t a matter of your lifespan suddenly dropping upon your move to a certain area, but if you do live in that area there are probably reasons for it. Being poor increases the likelihood of shorter lifespan, and being poor means you can’t afford to live in a rich setting. Of course it will look like dilapidated neighborhoods make you die faster, though that isn’t directly true.
