Life Expectancy in U.S. Not Looking Good

Life Expectancy in U.S. Not Looking Good

Life expectancy in the United States is falling behind, and in face, in 2030 studies say it will be even worse. According to an article on Arizona Hospital and Healthcare Association:

Where does that leave us in the rankings? Are we near the bottom of the top 10? At least in the top 20? No and no! By 2030, when men and women in the U.S. are projected to live to 80 and 83. American women will fall to 27th out of 35 countries, from their current ranking of 25, and men will fall from 23rd to 26th.

This shocking information is in part due to the lack of healthcare coverage, nutrition, and murder rates.

From CBS News:

Life expectancy in the United States is already much lower than most other high-income countries and is expected to fall even further behind by 2030, new research published today predicts.

According to the most recent government figures, life expectancy at birth in the United States is 76.3 years for men and 81.2 years for women.

Using a number of forecasting models, researchers from the U.K. predict life expectancy in the U.S. will improve to 83.3 years for women and 79.5 years for men by the year 2030.
