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!
