Down with suburbia!
New research suggests that suburbia is bad for your health.
See? Like I've been saying, living in a city is good.
As it says in the Salt Lake Tribune: "...living in a more sprawling urban area, such as Atlanta, has the health effect of making your body four years older than it really is, at least compared to those who live in more integrated cities, such as Seattle."
The article concludes by saying, "The desire for further multitudes of single-family homes on suburban cul-de-sacs, and our allergy to anything with the term 'high-density' attached, is going to have to be reconsidered. Our very health depends on it."
I'm telling you, the Koreans have the right idea. Build massive, affordable apartment blocks surrounded by parks, shops and restaurants. It sounds like a bad idea at first, and it looks damn ugly to single-family-home-loving Americans, but it makes more sense. High population density can be a good thing if it's planned well. Bring on the density!
