Religion Kills?

Looks like Baptists are having trouble keeping their members alive; Lutherans seem to be doing pretty well. I dunno about those Mormons though they're all over the map.

This is a good example of correlation which does not indicate causation. Converting to southern baptist almost certainly would not shorten your lifespan -- but by looking at these maps you might get that idea. Similar ideas lead us astray in many areas.
