Summary: "UNNATURAL CAUSES sounds the alarm about the extent of our alarming socio-economic and racial inequities in health--and searches for their root causes. But those causes are not what we might expect ... It turns out there's much more to our health than bad habits, health care or unlucky genes. The social conditions in which we are born, live and work profoundly affect our well-being and longevity."--Producer's website.
