KOLD Report: Where people live the longest, shortest in Tucson

On Aug. 2, KOLD-TV aired a report on where people live the longest in the Tucson area and it listed this statistic for life expectancy between people who live in the foothills as opposed to the southside — 84.7 years in the foothills vs. 68.5 years in the southside.

The stats are from the American Heart Association. The report does not include information about the history of water contamination on the southside nd how that might affect the life expectancy of people who lived on the southside since the 1940’s.
