If I was a betting man, which I am not, I'd say the study was based largely on the meta-analysis of macro data such as socioeconomic status—which can be an indicator of health.
Augusta, GA, is in an interesting paradigm of its history as it is essentially transitioning from a big town to a medium-sized city. Infrastructure, including recycling and green space, have improved tremendously over the last decade or so. Perhaps the investigators on this study should update their evidence profile.
