The increased diseases can be linked to changes in diets, increase in poverty levels, and increased communicable disease resulting from poor sanitation and overpopulation.
It was also notable that chaos and violence escalated in many of the cases. It should be noted that there were wars in agricultural revolution but they were not as intense as those witnessed in urban revolution were. Wars in urban revolution in used sophisticated firearms making the dangers associated serious. In addition, in urban revolution, wars were in large scale as a country can attack another. According to Adams (2001), “Life was so chaotic and violent that nothing was accomplished in terms economic growth” (p. 357).
