Know Urban Sprawl Harm
Urban Sprawl that is characteristic of many urban communities in USA.
Suburban links to urban hub is unsustainable living with rising costs of clean water, total dependence on automobiles with traffic congesion, air pollution issues, and costs associated with pedestrian injuries injuries and fetalities.
Quality rural living is not possible either when people living in small communities have to commute 4 to 5 hours daily to go to work by automobiles and work 8 hour day.
And yes, there is a link between this unsustainable life style with increased health problems associated with both urban and suburbuan sprawl infested life styles. It's not a logical nor sustainable choice or desirable choice based on wisdom of knowledge and experience.
This is not quality living for many in the urban or rural communities as is the case in Northern Virginia, an urban community suburb of Metro Washington DC Hub.
