Bad Economy Improves Public Health!?

Yeah, it's counterintuitive, as reported in this LA Times news article, "Can a troubled economy actually improve public health? " It's an interesting thought, a poor economy might actually help all of us cut down on risky behaviors, and lead to a potentially healthier population.

I would've imagined that a recession would make us all go out, get stressed, smoke more, and drink harder, etc. But to my surprise, here's what seems to really happen . . .

  1. Traffic accidents go down when fewer people are working
  2. People drink less. That is to say, people who already drink, do less of it.
  3. Healthful living improves.
