snip~For the first time in more than two decades, life expectancy for Americans declined last year — a troubling development linked to a panoply of worsening health problems in the United States.more @https://www.washingtonpost.com/national/health-science/us-life-expectancy-declines-for-the-first-time-since-1993/2016/12/07/7dcdc7b4-bc93-11e6-91ee-1adddfe36cbe_story.html?utm_term=.a292aff4c02dWhen you get my age you read everything that may help you for a few more day or years.
If one reads between the lines there are some other factors that came to my mind. At age 65 the life expectancy did not change and most of the change cam from middle aged and younger. One wonders if all the illegals entering the country bring diseases and existing conditions with them. Just saying.
I blame the sedentary lifestyle. Everything can be done at home now, entertainment, ordering on Amazon, socializing, etc.
I'd like to see the third worlders taken out of the equation. I have a feeling the disease ridden that sneak in, really effects the numbers.
