You probably always thought there was something unhealthy about San Berdoo
, and you were right: seems that Angelenos fleeing high housing prices by heading further and further inland are trading in a hefty mortgage payment for an increased risk of death
The smog and associated particulates that accumulate in higher concentrations in the Inland Empire
than, say, Brentwood
, have been found to contribute to an 11 to 17% increase in the likelihood of succumbing to heart disease.
That's a pretty significant number. Clearly something needs to be done.
Maybe it's time to reconsider placing giant fans in the mountains
, to blow the smog away.
Or maybe we could all just drive cleaner cars, reduce our automobile trips, and take mass transit...
Naaah. Bring on the fans!
