Watching the STV News just now and a report states that those living in high rise towerblocks live longer than those who live at ground floor level. They have x% less chance of heart disease, y% less chance of lung disease and so on. We are preached at daily that eating this will shorten your life, drinking that will extend your life and smoking the other will mean you're already dead. Why are we obsessed with living longer and longer. On a planet that is barely able to feed the people already on board, why do we want to fill it even more with old folk. Isn't it better to live a shorter life and enjoy it rather than a long, dull, monotonous life?
