    Re: County by County U.S. Life Expectency Map

    Pretty cool, I saw Alabama and Mississippi have lower life expectancy across the whole state, but then I thought if I had to live there I wouldn't want to live as long either so it probably works out.

    Re: County by County U.S. Life Expectency Map

    I gained 4 years by moving to Story County from NE Missouri! Suck it, Grim Reaper.

    I could get another 8 months by moving to Johnson County. And living another 8 months there would feel like about 20 years.

    Some of those counties have some crazy low life expectancy in today's world with our current medical technologies. Story county has a 10 year advantage on some of those.

    I unfortunately have spent a week in rural Tennessee and Alabama on a couple different occasions. It should come to no surprise to anyone who has been in that part of the world that the life expectancy numbers are that low when you see first hand the lifestyles that some of these people live in parts of those states. The southern stereotype exists for a very good reason.

    Re: County by County U.S. Life Expectency Map

    Currently I live in Scott County, IA, and I have a life expectancy of 76 years. When I move to Macomb County, MI in 3 weeks, apparently I can expect to live 3 months less. I guess I do have added motivation for moving to Oakland County, MI when we actually purchase our house - I can expect to live an additional 2 years.

    If you are female, you need to move to #1 Collier County Florida near Naples. Tell sugar daddy that you need a condo down there.

    Too many deep fried cardiac events in the deep south. That fried catfish and Mississippi water comes with a price. Cancer rates are high.
