URBANIZATION WAS A MISTAKE:

Mental health problems worse in cities (The Local, 26th February 2007)

Swedish city-dwellers have more psychological problems than people living in other parts of the country.

The results of a survey carried out by the Swedish National Institute of Public Health also show men and women in northern Sweden reporting an improvement in their mental wellbeing.

Stress, uneasiness, worry and anxiety are all more common in towns than in the countryside. And the symptoms are more widespread among women than men.


Cities are effective as office parks and entertainment centers, but humans oughtn't live in them.

That's all right, the city people can ride the train back and forth to the psychiatrist.
