    Americans Are Dying Younger, Study Shows

    An increasing number of Americans are dying far before their time, causing the U.S. life expectancy rate to continue decreasing, according to a new study from the Journal of the American Medical Association.


    Life expectancy has been decreasing since 2014, according to the study, published Tuesday. A big factor is the increase in deaths among young and middle-aged adults due to varying causes including drug overdoses, suicide and more.


    As of 2017, the life expectancy in America was 78.6 year, according to the study. That’s a drop from its peak in 2014, which saw the life expectancy grow to 98.9 years. The decrease is largely due to more people dying before they should between the ages of 24 and 64.

    My dad died at 63. Heart issues. But he was much stronger than I ever was- and I hit the weights hard.

    One can see how all the over use of drugs, starting with pot, would cause that to go down. I would like to see a breakdown of ages and would bet those over 60 are living closer to the high mark.

    If he had heart issues not associated with diet and/or lifestyle, they would most certainly have been detectable in his forties, assuming he went to a doctor. Strong and healthy are not always synonymous if you have built-in defects. Early detection of defects can avoid a shortened lifespan.
