Want To Live Longer? Move To Portland, Maine
A new study just released from Stanford, MIT, Harvard, McKinsey, and the U.S. Treasury looks at what are America's longest-living cities. The study, published in The Journal of the American Medical Association, used income versus life expectancy in a sample involving more than 1.4 billion person-year observations of Americans between the ages of 40 to 76. After comparing the taxes people earned to life expectancy and where they lived, they found some places were better than the rest for living longer, depending on your income.
Portland, Maine came in as the fifth best city on their list!
