The good news about the recession

Contrary to what you might have expected, population health actually improves during an economic recession.  Possible explanations include the increased time individuals have with their families during a recession, and the surprising fact that overeat, smoke, and imbibe less than when the economic times are good.  Despite my concern for population health, I am still ready for this recession (as well as this winter) to be over.
