American life expectancy

May 16, 2023

AverageAgeDeathByCountyThere is a glaring difference in life expectancy across the different regions of the US. The map right is cleverly colored blue and red, aligning with the correlated politics. The blue counties are where people live longer.

The cause of that gap is not just deaths of despair, from drugs and alcohol and suicide. It’s not just diabetes. It’s not just those in red counties avoiding vaccines, and the other pernicious health influences that come from being “red pilled.” It’s not just gun deaths. It’s all of those, and more combined.

Monica Potts writes about how she left Clinton, Arkansas, while many of her girlhood friends did not.
