Babies born to mothers in Maryland’s Montgomery County and Virginia’s Arlington and Fairfax Counties are expected to live six to seven years longer than babies born to mothers in Washington, D.C. Downtown in Washington, D.C., babies have about 6 to 7 year difference of life expectancy. Those living near French Quarter in New Orleans, Lousiana have about 55 years to live compared to those living near Naverre who have about 80 years to live. Babies born to mothers in Minneapolis and Saint Paul, Minnesota and babies born to mothers in San Joaquin Valley, California have a higher expectancy to live than those in Washington, D.C., New Orleans, Louisiana and Kansas City, Missouri. I find it interesting that 3 miles could equal up to a 13-year life span difference.
