The researcher found that the headquarters for the Toxico Chemical Plant is located in Community A, there is a higher rate of cigarette smoking in this community and residents tended to delay or skip going to the doctor for an annual checkup.

However, like individuals from Community A, Community B residents tended to delay or skip their annual checkups with their doctor.
