Unnatural Causes: Is Inequality Making Us Sick?

Unnatural Causes, for the first time on film, sounds the alarm about our disturbing socioeconomic and racial inequities in health—and searches for their root causes. But those causes are not what we might expect. There’s much more to our health than bad habits, healthcare, or unlucky genes. The social conditions in which we are born, live, and work profoundly affect our well-being and longevity. -Film Description
