Secret to Long Life: Location, Location, Location How long you will live may well depend on where you live. Data shows that life expectancy in Hawaii is 81 years. Makes sense. Folks there already ARE in heaven. In Ohio, it's three-plus years less. Why? Host Mike McIntyre guesses precipitation, po'boys and pathetic pro sports. But he's no scientist. So join him Monday morning at 9:00 for a Science Café edition of The Sound of Ideas as we consult experts on the science behind life expectancy.
