Unnatural Causes, a seven-part documentary series, asks the question: "Is inequality making us sick?" and suggests that how we are born, live, and work can make us ill.
It's not necessarily a ground-breaking notion, but executive producer Larry Adelman notes that the United States has the worst disease outcomes of any industrialized nation and that even its middle class - yes, thats probably you -- die, on average, about three years sooner than the rich.
The first section of the documentary will air tonight. The rest will air the next three consecutive Thursdays (April 3rd, 10th, and 17th) on WKNO at 9 p.m.
