Pollution vs Cancer

So there were two “map” stories on Digg recently; first one that showed the breakdown of colon cancer by state, and then one that mapped CO2 emissions… As you can see below, and as I'm sure is no surprise, they line up pretty closely. I have no doubt that you could line up any number of similarly unpleasant stats and draw a variety of conclusions, but the underlying reality is pretty clear no matter how you look at it — living in polluted, populated, industrialized environments is extremely unhealthy.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
