Obesity and smoking to blame as life expectancy falls in poorest US counties | Mail Online

Assuming, based on the color codes, that men along I-64 from Fayette to Jefferson Co only lived to the miminum needed for the color code (75.1) they are outliving men in rural KY by at least 3 years and up to 7 years!

I'm not sure why the rural Midwest is just as healthy as the cities but in the South / Appalachians there is such a huge disparity.
