I don't have kids. Don't really want any either, would not want to have kids go through the liberal agenda that is being pushed on our country, and just plain don't want any!
I guess I luck out living in a fairly clean air environment. I do notice a difference when i visit my grandfather who lives off the east end of lake ontario here in NY (tug hill region) Much cleaner air up there! Or maybe its just...fresher? I dunno.
I think that would be enough to get me out of your area.
I never got sick from any of the chemicals ive worked around or been exposed to. If it shortens my life, oh well, them last 20 years are achy pill-consuming days, and I HATE taking pills.
I used to smoke too, cigarettes contain more chemicals that are toxic than I have worked around.
