Jamestown might have been seen as a really good place to leave but everything has a good and a bad part. The people that lived there had many health problems since they were located in the dirtiest part of the river. They didn't have drinkable water the whole year , they just had it in certain months of the year and the rest of the year the water was salty. They didn't have many things to eat so they suffered from starvation. They had several changes with the weather. Also many diseases attacked them now and then.
