  1. This is eerily coecrrt (in my experience, at least!). I was born and lived maybe half of my life in Ohio, total nerd. Lived in NC for a long time- and I’ve heard the complaints! Lived on the border of GA while in NC, knew a lot of people with sickly issues (and I still do..). Moved to Arizona drank more alcohol there than I have anywhere else. I mean really. It became a problem for awhile. I live in Texas now (Austin), and I’m definitely not arguing that one! And .I’m about to move to Washington State .which now scares me a little Thanks for sharing! I’ve passed this link on to a lot of co-workers! Hahaha
