Coronavirus (COVID-19) Discussion in Fantasy Baseball Talk Posted April 11 4 minutes ago, tonycpsu said: Experts have studied the relationship between economic hardship and longevity, and it's a lot more nuanced than one might initially think. How the Recession Improved Life Expectancy—but Didn't Make Us Healthier Anyone asserting that economic hardship leads to more deaths or shorter lifespans needs to show their work. This article is suggesting that people live longer when in times of economic hardship? really?... i guess we should all just stop working and making money then.. we will all live longer.. Unfortunately, it doesnt appear to me that article takes into account people who develop mental health issues.. or discusses the ones who develop mental health issues and dont even go get checked up.. or how many turn to the bottle? Naturally, the theory makes sense... people dont goto work.. stay home.. live longer.. sure.. less people outside.. less opportunity for crime.. violence.. car accidents.. it does make sense.. but, it doesnt paint a true picture.
