People in villages eat full stomach all the time but they do physical activities a lot. They do not have a washing machine or vacuum cleaner. So they manually wash clothes and clean the floor. In cities, people have all the modern amenities so their physical activities are reduced. They focus on controlling their diet.
Villagers would live longer and healthier than their city counterparts if the same kind of healthcare services and hygiene are accessible to both.
