Sprawl Kills 

"Sprawl May Harm Health, Study Finds"
This Washington Post article reports on a study which claims some deleterious effects of suburban sprawl. These are all common sense, it just took someone to document these health hazards for the information to make the news. People in the suburbs walk less, drive more, and the lack of exercise plus car pollution contribute to various health problems. However, the study did not find living in the suburbs harmful to one's mental health.
