I had a super post lined up for tonight.
I came across some sort of report about the good effects of living high in the sky, but for the life of me, I cannot now find that report. It does not appear in my ‘history’ of sites visited. It must therefore be that I came across it incidentally, while reading something else somewhere. How damned annoying!
So I can only relate what I read, although my memory is hazy (since I read it quickly and intended to return to it).
It seems that someone has done a study on the health effects of living high in the sky. I think that it was in London. The researchers found that people who live at the top of a high-rise building suffer far less ‘breathing difficulties’ and similar problems than those who live near the bottom of such places. The study surmised that this was because of:
a) the lack of exposure to street-level atmospheric pollution.
b) a pleasanter outlook over the city skyline.
c) more exercise if and when the lifts break down.
plus a couple of other things.
I cannot help but feel that the report was in the Telegraph, and I just spotted it. But I cannot now find it. I’ll look again.
UPDATE 3 AM 4TH SEP.
Well, I cannot find it. How sad that I failed to bookmark it. Ah well …..
