Steel re-enforced in most cases means some big residential
highrise in a congested area. No wonder that those people
are or feel less healthy. I have never understood the desire
of city folk to cram together like sardines in a can.


Try an intro Anthropology book some time.
Before The Inter Webs, close proximity promoted exchange of ideas and
specialization of effort. Still does to some extent.


It does, though specialization is not always a good thing. It results,
for example, in people who can't even fix a flat. Their tool of fixing
just about anything is the yellow pages.


Fixing a flat IS specialization, particularly a tubular. Are you saying the rugged individualists in Cameron Park -- a golf community with an airstrip -- are more likely to fix their own flats than the downtrodden city dwellers in, say, Portland or Minneapolis?


As for health, dense living results in lot of civilization diseases,
higher stress levels and nowadays lung diseases because of pollution.
Probably also more cancer. Just about every time I reach the top of the
last hill to ride into the Sacramento Valley I see that brownish smog
line and I am thankful not to have to live down there. Other times I can
literally smell it.


And yet, you're headed to Sacramento to get goods and services lacking in Cameron Park -- which is not surprising, since it was designed as a parasitic bedroom community carved out of a cow-pasture/vinyard. Rugged individualists with cars and strip malls.

BTW, rural populations typically fare worse in terms of physical and mental health.
